The Invention of Hugo CabretDrawing a treasured notebook a stolen key a mechanical man and a hidden message from Hugo's dead father form the backbone of this intricate tender and spellbinding mystery. I enjoyed this book so much even than Wonderstruck which I loved The illustrations are wonderful and the way the story is told in text and then for several pages in drawing is so uniue This book also has some vintage photography of the era which really helps set the sceneHugo is an orphan with a talent for machinery he lives in a railway station in Paris and tends to the clocks and steals food to get by He has a secret that he focusses all his energy into trying to complete in his father's memory When he meets another orphan their stories come together and end in a very satisfying conclusionThe characters were wonderful I want to spend time with them I loved the inclusion of the stills from films and the information on these factual elements included in the back pagesThe pictures make you race through what would otherwise seem like a huge book it's an ideal read for children who find a longer book a struggle9th September 2018 My daughter is reading this now we just looked up the Harold Lloyd clock scene which is pictured as a still in this book It is from the film 'Safety First' 1923 watched the film on YouTube well worth a look

Ks with an eccentric bookish girl and a bitter old man who runs a toy booth in the station Hugo's undercover life and his most precious secret are put in jeopardy A cryptic. There is something awesome feeling about getting through 400 pages of a book on an hour lunch break and still have time to use the bathroom and punch in three minutes early So what if the book has lots of illustrations and it's written for children it's still a real sense of Herculean reading even if it's not that impressive I liked this book a lot I considered giving it five stars I don't read children or young adult novels so I don't have much to compare it to The book has much depth though than This is not a Box or Don't Give the Cat a Cupcake or even any of the books about that troublesome pigeon who wants to drive the bus and do other things birds aren't supposed to do This book also is so much better than the first two Harry Potter books which I have read and didn't care for very much This book has the a great sense of wonder that adult books like Trip to the Stars has It also has a feeling of the greatness and mystery of books and stories in general that reading Borges can induce but this is for kids which is cool because it's probably good for kids to learn that books are magical and fun at a young age The pictures that make up about half the book are an interesting device They do help move parts of the story along like I think the chase scenes benefit from being done entirely by pictures reading about a boy running away from someone wouldn't have had the same 'excitement' as in the pictures I don't know much about kids but I think that the way the book opens with almost fifty pages of pictures gives a great feeling for the book which would be much difficult to have described for kids in only words As I said I liked this a lot and the book made me happy that it existed in the world

Knowing I had to return this to the library tomorrow I had a browse and noticed it is majority pictures and not a whole of lot text So this evening I managed to read the entire thing out loud to my mother and sister 💖Boom Now I can return it having read this masterpiece You know machines never have any extra parts They have the exact number and type of parts they need So I believe that if the entire world is a big machine I have to be here for some reason And that means you have to be here for some reason too I absolutely adore the film Hugo so when I found out it was originally a book I felt I had to pick it up This story follows a young boy Hugo who lives in the train station in Paris He lives alone taking care of the many clocks around the station and making sure they are all running smoothly He has with him a machine his father told him about An automaton that he is determined to fix up The story itself is very simple about Hugo's survival in the train station and how his life changes forever when he has a run in with the old man who runs the toy booth Everything in this tale joins together; Hugo's automaton the old man and his toys his father's love of movies it all combines to create a wonderful story It is a magical tale filled with wonder and joy in the simple things What tipped it to the five star mark for me were the wonderful illustrations in this novel Pages of drawings that serve to tell parts of the story where we don't read any text at all and we just see the story unfold before our very eyesBreathtaking
