The Invention of Hugo Cabret

This is the train station where he lives
with his Farther.
This book is really nice the pictures are beautiful!

This is Hugo Cabret.
He daily wind's up all the
clocks in the train station.














After a while he finds out he mustfix the automaton on his own...
Hugo with the automaton.














Here's a film review from http://www.scholastic.com/browse/article.jsp?id=3756734, read a paragraph now:

Hugo's mother has already died when his beloved father perishes in a fire. Orphaned, Hugo is taken in by his creepy, drunk, penniless uncle who lives in the train station clock tower. His life is changed forever. Suddenly too poor to go to school, Hugo must steal bread every day, or he'll have nothing to eat. All he has left is himself — until he meets a girl named Isabelle (Chloe Grace Moretz), who is also an orphan.
