Our whole family loved reading and looking at the wonderful illustrations in The Invention of Hugo Cabret. Our reading of the book holds a special place for all of us as we read it while we were vacationing in France. The story takes place in a train station in Paris. We visited the Musée d'Orsay, a museum specializing in impressionist paintings which our family loves. The museum is a former train station. The cafe is situated behind the faces of two large clocks. Eating in the cafe of the Musee D'Orsay was really a treat for us!
My review of The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick
I didn't know a film was being made from this book until I volunteered at our children's
school's book fair last week. While working I came across this book:
The Hugo Movie Companion
I am hoping to put that book on my Christmas list this year.
I also recently saw that Selznick has another new book on the market.
I don't even know anything about the book yet but I'm pretty sure it will find
it's way onto my Christmas list also.
Here is a Hugo Cabret interactive site sponsored by Scholastic:

Everything you'd like to know about the film on IMDB.com
I just realized Johnny Depp is in the film as M. Rouleau.
The film hits cinemas on 23 November, just in time for Thanksgiving!
I can't wait to see this with our family.
I wish the publisher would release Selznick's books as ebooks; I think they'd work great on eInk readers.
