I really liked this story. It was about a young boy named Hugo Cabret who loves to fix things, especially clocks. The museum burns down and Hugo’s father is killed. Hugo goes to live with his Uncle and meets a girl named Isabelle. He befriends her and starts out on a magical sequence of events …
My favourite character was Hugo because he was very brave and yet a little mischievous. He has a main purpose in life, which is to fix his father’s Automan, which was very precious to his father.
I rate this book a 10 out of 10 because there were very clever drawings telling you every detail of what was going on, which really added something to the story.
Who would enjoy it? Children aged 9 upwards would really understand this book and how wonderful it is to read.
I think it is being made into a film. Does anyone know? Leave a comment if you do know please.
