The Invention of Hugo Cabret

by Brian Selznick

Overall: 5 out of 5 stars

This book is amazing.  On one hand, it seems completely natural once you’re in the story that the narration switches between words and drawings.  You hardly notice it and the drawings are so intricate that they are almost photograph-like.  Every once in a while I realized that these were drawings, most likely done in pencil, and the level of detail and shading is absolutely amazing.  The story is nothing to sneeze at either; bringing together characters of very different backgrounds in a story that wraps up fairly neatly and interestingly.  Go check it out!
