The Invention of Hugo Cabret My new most favorite book is The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selnick, it's this year's Caldecott Winner. I just finished reading it to my class this a.m. (2nd grade) and we fell in love w/all the characters. Tis sorta a French version of Cinderalla with that kind of happy ending. It's a large book but filled with some of the most beautiful black and white drawings. I can't wait for Selnick to write another book.
