Outstanding story from start to finish. So many times I wanted to cry for Hugo because of how he lost his father and uncle and had to live on his own in the timekeepers apartment. I mean stealing food and drinks. Stealing toys...such a sad upcoming.
However, meeting the toy both owner, Georges, was probably the best thing to ever happen in the story. At first I was a bit upset about how they met, but as Hugo begins to learn so much about his connection the relationship / bond between Hugo and Georges blossoms.
The artwork, movie pictures and drawings were an amazing, important and highly effective part of telling this story.
Totally recommend this book to any children or anyone looking for a light read with a bit of mystery to it.
