Words and cinematic pencil drawings are used to tell the story of twelve year-old orphan Hugo who lives in the walls of a busy Paris train station. When his world interlocks with an eccentric, bookish girl and a bitter old man who runs a toy booth in the train station, Hugo's undercover life and his most precious secret are put in jeopardy. A cryptic drawing, a treasured notebook, and 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. "A true masterpiece."—Publishers Weekly
