Book Summary

See below for English description.

Hugo Cabret vit dans une gare de Paris. Orphelin, horloger et cambrioleur, son anonymat est le gage de sa survie. Mais le destin met bientôt sur son chemin une petite fille excentrique et un vieil homme aigri qui tient un comptoir de jouets dans la gare. Lorsque son secret le plus précieux est mis au jour, il se tisse une trame inextricable où dessin codé, précieux cahier, clé volée, androïde et message signé du père d'Hugo s'entremêlent.

Brian Selznick s'est beaucoup inspiré de la vie de Georges Méliès qui a oeuvré dans le monde du cinéma entre 1890 et 1920 et à qui l'on attribue la réalisation du premier film de science-fiction.

L'invention de Hugo Cabret réunit les caractéristiques du roman et de l'album illustré. L'auteur innove en alternant des segments en images, puis en textes. Plus de la moitié des pages sont illustrées de dessins au crayon, en noir et blanc.

Orphan clock keeper, and thief, Hugo Cabret lives in the walls of a busy Paris train station where his survival depends on secrets and anonymity. But when his world suddenly interlocks - like the gears of the clock he keeps - with an eccentric, bookish girl and a bitter old man who runs a toy booth in the train station, Hugo's undercover life, and his most precious secret are put in jeopardy. A cryptic drawing, a treasured notebook, a stolen key, a mechanical man, and a hidden message from Hugo's dead father form the backbone of this intricate, tender, and spellbinding mystery.

With more than three hundred pages of original drawings, and combining elements of picture book, graphic novel, and film, Brian Selznick breaks open the novel form to create an entirely new reading experience. Here is a stunning, cinematic tour de force from a boldly innovative storyteller, artist and bookmaker.
