really liked it
bookshelves: 2012-reads
Read from March 01 to 03, 2012

This book was the perfect combination of illustration and story telling. I loved how the illustrations directly impacted the narrative, it forces the reader to not only pay attention and read the text but the beautiful drawings as well.
The reason I only gave it four stars instead of five is because while I loved the relationship between the illustrations and the text, visually and literally. The story had the potential to be a great and wonderful adventure, and it was, but I felt like it was missing something.
If you like beautifully illustrated children's novels, movie history, magic, and adventure you will like The Invention of Hugo Cabret
