"The Invention of Hugo Cabret"

What do you get when an award-winning illustrator authors a book? A wonderful story partially told through drawings.

After reading a small blurb about this book in the Wall Street Journal sometime ago, I checked it out from the library for my son to read. I had no intention of reading it myself, but after I flipped through it out of curiously, I ended up spending the better part of the afternoon reading it from cover to cover. Don't be put off by the fact that this is a book for children (or it's length... yes 500+ pages, but many are pictures, or contain little text)... it's a great story and a very fun read!
