I first read this book in 5th grade. The invention of Hugo Cabret was on the book shelf of my classroom. At first, i thought this book would be boring and too thick to read. But, it looked a little different than other books, so i decided to try it. I opened the first page, and was surprised that it had lots of pictures. So i read the pictures thoroughly, and imagined it in my head like a movie. It got more interesting as i read. I couldn't put the book down. This book is my favorite book-so far. I have never read a book like this. It was wonderful! I learned to never judge a book by how it looks, but in the inside is what really matters.I can't wait till the book by the same author, "Wonderstruck" comes out. I hope you enjoy reading this tremendous book.
