Hugo Cabret written and illustrated by Brian Selznick


Hugo Cabret is the ultimate book for the upper level elementary student that wants to look like they are reading a big, thick book. It is a 5th grade level book and it is worth 4 points. It is 533 pages long, but it mostly beautiful pencil illustrations. The book won the Caldecott Award in 2008, which is the most prestigious award given for illustrations.

I forgot to set the book out when I asked the students to write review for the books so I do not have any student reviews.

Mrs. Rose's Review - Hugo Cabret was a wonderful book. It had outstanding illustrations, and a great story to go along with it. It is about a 12-year-old orphaned boy that is a young thief in the 1930's in a Paris train station. He is living in the station secretly. He works on a project that he later finds out that it was started by his father. He works on it throughout the book by stealing items to make it work. It is a very heartwarming story that I would suggest for boys or girls.
