Praise

" Here is a true masterpiece-an artful blending of narrative, illustration and cinematic technique, for a story as tantalizing as it is touching...The plot ultimately has much to do with the history of the movies, and Selznick's genius lies in his expert use of such a visual style to spotlight the role of this highly visual media. A standout achievement." 1/1/2007

"[THE INVENTION OF HUGO CABRET] is wonderful...a captivating work of fiction that young readers with a taste for complex plots and a touch of magic--think Harry H., not Harry P.--can love." - John Schwartz 3/11/2007

"While the bookmaking is spectacular, and the binding secure but generous enough to allow the pictures to flow easily across the gutter, THE INVENTION OF HUGO CABRET is foremost good storytelling, with a sincerity and verbal ease reminiscent of Andrew Clements (a frequent Selznick collaborator) and themes of secrets, dreams, and invention that play lightly but resonantly throughout." 3/1/2007

"With deft fore-shadowing, sensitively wrought characters, and heart-pounding suspense, the author engineers the elements of his complex plot...This is a masterful narrative that readers can literally manipulate." 3/1/2007
