    The Invention of Hugo Cabret is the basis for the Martin Scorsese film Hugo I saw the movie first and then read this book The book is simply amazing and is mostly pictures with a few pages of text interspersed One might even call it experimental fiction Whatever you call it this book is awesome and was incredibly well researched and is a Caldecott award winner I was able to read this in less than an hour and a half even though it has well over 500 pages so don't be discouraged by the size of it There are some small differences between Hugo the movie and the book but they are relatively trivial although I like the ending in the movie better than the book's ending uite simply a very well thought out and written children's story that is fit for readers of all ages

    Beautifully crafted story both in words and illustrations It reads like an old black and white movie The illustrations are breath taking every time I look I see a new detail Love that they are rendered solely with graphite and charcoal It gives the book a historical feel like you are in a time before color which just enhances the story so much I had such a sense of wonder when I finished that I will be reading his entire line

    I simply have never had this experience before No book I've read has ever combined graphics as part of the actual movement of the story not as supportive to the dialog not to clarify the words but as vehicles themselves to carry the story forward They are pencil drawings beautifully shaded It is a like the merging of a book and a silent black and white movieGood stories are layered The tale hangs mainly on our protagonist the orphan Hugo living within the walls and spaces of a Parisian train station He has taken on the function of time keeperclock winder that his now missing uncle once performed A mysterious mechanical man in disrepair left to Hugo by his beloved father becomes the vehicle to join the child to another station character the crotchety toy merchant who maintains a small shop in the main concourse Hugo uses pieces from the mechanical toys which he has stolen from the merchant to tinker with the mechanical man Once he is caught we have the opportunity to learn about the old man through Hugo's interaction with him and his young niece Hugo's new friendThe pivotal character of the station's toy merchant pulls us further into this world when Hugo discovers his past as a magician and as a pioneer with film By placing the story within a train station Brian Selznick can tip his hat to some of the groundbreaking first attempts at film which used the same type of venue as well as the genius of imagination that was set free with this new medium The great clocks of the station's tower help us remember Harold Loyd and the trains were the subjects of some of the first films It is at this point that the use of the black and white illustrations takes on another function speaking to us about the dramatic way images without sound and color can still speak to us so elouentlyThis is one of those special books that has a compelling story that can be read by a young reader and at the same time can be a bridge to historical events when read by an adult I chose to explore Hugo Cabret after seeing a trailer for the movie Hugo My intention was to pre screen the book to see if it was appropriate for a great niece's Christmas present To my surprise as an adult I was enthralled And as so often happens the book's story became a doorway it led me to trace information about the earliest experiments with film The relationship between early film and magicians was a surprise to me And perhaps as a person living approximately a century after film began let alone having no memory of a life without it it is understandable that I had no perspective about the effects of the first films on their viewers a world of imagination nightmares and dreams How strange magical and wonderful it all must have seemedKnowing Scorsese's love of film history I am now anxious to see how he has brought this book to film to tell both a child's story and to help all of us appreciate the evolution of what we are watching
