The Invention of Hugo Cabret, by Brian Selznick
One of the things that I liked best about this book is the drawings.
It tells a story with the pictures, then continues it with words. For
example, it might show Hugo behind clocks, crawling into a grate
and ending up at a door. On the next page, it would continue the
story with words, like ‘He opened the door...’ The way that the
author wrote it makes you have feelings for the main character,
Hugo, and hope for him to stay well and fix the mechanical man
that his father, now dead, had started.
