Orphan, clock keeper, and thief, Hugo lives in the walls of a busy Paris train station, where his survival depends on secrets and anonymity. But when his world suddenly interlocks with an eccentric, bookish girl and a bitter old man who runs a toy booth in the 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.

About the Author

Caldecott Medal-winning illustrator and New York Times bestselling author Brian Selznick graduated from the Rhode Island School of Design with the intention of becoming a set designer for the theater. However, after spending three years selling books and designing window displays for a children''s bookstore in Manhattan, he was inspired to create children''s books of his own. His books have received many awards and distinctions, including a Caldecott Medal for The Invention of Hugo Cabret, a Caldecott Honor for The Dinosaurs of Waterhouse Hawkins, and a Robert F. Sibert Honor for When Marian Sang. Selznick travels extensively to research his books. He spent six months in Washington, D.C. for Amelia and Eleanor Go for a Ride, he traveled to England for The Dinosaurs of Waterhouse Hawkins, and he visited Walt Whitman''s childhood home in West Hills, New York, for Walt Whitman: Words for America. He visited the city of Paris three times to research The Invention of Hugo Cabret. When he''s not traveling to research his next book, Brian Selznick lives in Brooklyn, New York, and San Diego, California.
