I'd read The Invention of Hugo Caberet when it first came out, and luckily I got my own copy, but being in a slump for books I picked it up and began to read.
It's a really one in a never any more book- partly told with amazing, hand crafted pictures, partly with the written word.
Everything is is perfect equalness and it couldn't be a more wonderful book.
The story isn't at all complicated and it's brilliant being able to design your own story with reading the pictures... it's a brilliant story, being made into a movie as well!
And I truly and undefyably (new word!) want you all to read it.
Please do, because it's worth it a hundred fold.
