About this item

Caldecott Honor artist Brian Selznick's lavishly illustrated debut novel is a cinematic tour de force not to be missed!

ORPHAN, CLOCK KEEPER, AND THIEF, Hugo lives in the walls of a busy Paris train station, where his survival depends on secrets and anonymity. But when his world suddenly interlocks 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 drawing, 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.

5.0 stars by Vic531

My daughter checked out this book from her school library but didn't get to finish reading it. She was so impressed with the story and art, as was I, that she asked me to purchase the book for her. Walmart had this book available at a much lower price than the national book chains so purchasing the book was a no-brainer. Now my daughter can read and enjoy this book anytime she wants. This was a great buy!

This story is told like a movie. I love the 150 pages of pictures. It is very imaginative. I'm fascinated by the author's creativity. A truly intriguing book. This would be a good chapter book for struggling readers because the pictures help to tell the story and with so many pictures you move through the story quickly.
