Orphan, clock keeper, thief: Hugo lives in the walls of a busy Paris train station, where his survival depends on secrets and anonymity. Combining elements of picture book, graphic novel, and film, Caldecott Honor artist Selznick breaks open the novel form to create an entirely new reading experience in this intricate, tender, and spellbinding mystery.

The Invention of Hugo Cabret won the 2008 Caldecott Award. Bravo to the selection committee for their recognition of this very different and compelling use of illustrations.
