This book is a beautiful melange of images and text, which is exceedingly appropriate for a story about the visual world of film. The sketches are beautifully constructed and the tell the story as vividly as the words do. We follow the adventures of Hugo cabaret, who lives in the walls of a train station, and his encounters with a toy shop owner and his daughter. Everyone in this book has secrets which the reader unfolds as the story progresses.
