The Invention of Hugo Cabret

Now that the weather is finally getting a bit cooler,
and the days a tad shorter,
a book is the perfect way to end the day with the smaller dna units.

The Invention of Hugo Cabret is a wonderful boOk.

It's based on Real People.
and the magic of moving pictures.
loss and rebirth.

do not let the size of this book turn you away.

This book is filled with exquisite drawings and pictures.

My Kids would ask if we were going to read this, almost every night.
The Blu man re~read it after We read it.
He was drawn to all the mechanics of the book: the clock, the Automaton, the wind up mouse..
The Lolly really liked looking at all the sketch drawings.
I wanted to see what the Automaton would draw...

Highly recommended Family read.
