Summary
Orphan Hugo Cabret is an apprentice clockmaker, living alone in a train station in Paris, who pilfers small toy parts in the hopes of fixing an automaton that he received from his father. When Hugo is caught stealing, he befriends a young girl and her godfather, who owns a toyshop in the train station, to help in solving the mystery of the automaton and his destiny.
Critique
A beautifully illustrated book that mixes media--part still-film images, part picture book and part novel. A magical reading experience for readers of any age. Highly recommend.
