Hugo Cabret

We are reading a wonderful mystery book in class.  The Invention of Hugo Cabret takes us back in time to the 1930’s.  Hugo lives in a train station in Paris, France.  If you would like to purchase your own copy, I have a link to Amazon.com.  I also encourage you to visit one of our local bookstores!  The book has won numerous awards as well as having a place on the New York Times Bestseller List.

ORPHAN, CLOCK KEEPER, AND THIEF, twelve-year-old 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 girl and the owner of a small toy booth in the train 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 all come together…in The Invention of Hugo Cabret. (From the website- links below)
