A review by bel017
The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick

  • Plot- or character-driven? Plot
  • Strong character development? Yes
  • Loveable characters? Yes
  • Diverse cast of characters? No
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? Yes
I would prefer the pictures to be lighter. Probably just my old eyes. The close up drawings are exquisite though. 

Even though, being a children's book, I knew it would end well, I still felt the tension as the story unfolded.
