"If you lose your purpose ... it's like your broken."
The Invention of Hugo Cabret
Author: Brian Selznik
Age Level: 9 and up
I started helping my 6 year-old grandson read this book Friday night and he loves it. You read a few pages and then are carried along by the magnificent drawings of author Brian Selznick. This book is 533 pages long, but with 1/3 of it being illustrations it doesn't take long to reach the end. Imagine the accomplishment a 6-9 year-old feels when he completes it. My grandson and I enjoyed it immensely and can't wait for the movie to open on November 23rd. I give it 4 stars. We couldn't put it down.
