By Brian Selznick
Before Hugo became an orphan, he had a dad who liked fixing things, too. Throughout the story Hugo tries to fix a robot that he had worked on with his dad before his dad died. The robot looks like a man that writes, and it is called an automan.
One of the coolest things about this book is all of the pictures! There are lots and lots of detailed pictures that help tell the story. I really enjoyed seeing pictures of the automan.
You will like this book if you like adventures, mysteries, and picture clues!
This book is tied as one of my top 3 all-time favorite books. You HAVE to read it. It is super duper awesome!
