The Invention of Hugo Cabret

This gem of a book is 533 pages long. I told Dan he needed to read it, and that it only takes an hour or two and he looked at me like I was INSANE. I don't actually read that fast, but this novel is told in both pictures and words. If you haven't read a graphic novel yet, this is a great one to try first.

You will find it in the juvenile section of the library. If I hadn't looked it up, I would say this book would be great starting around 5th grade--Publisher's Weekly says ages 9-12.

I don't want to tell you too much about it. (I'm glad the site that I got the recommendation from didn't spoil it for me.) Just go get it and enjoy. You'll be glad you did.
