This book for me was definitely a page turner, I could not put it down. The fact that it had a lot of pictures helped too. The book is big, but not long, so the number of pages is deceiving. I really enjoyed the slight mystery in the story, as Hugo tries to find out what the automan is supposed to write, as well as the sentimental feeling of him wanting to keep it as a memory of his father. I had to get to the end, to find out what it wrote.
