Product description

ORPHAN, CLOCK KEEPER, AND THIEF, twelve-year-old Hugo lives in the walls of a busy Paris train station, where his survival depends on secrets and anonymity. But when his world suddenly interlocks with an eccentric girl and her grandfather, Hugo's undercover life, and his most precious secret, are put in jeopardy. A cryptic drawing, a treasured notebook, 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.

An incredible book!
The hybrid between graphic novel and novel creates an incredible experience. It is easy to read and it has awesome drawings!
The book quality is huge, thick pages and a very sturdy hardback. The print quality is also superior.

Great read in a beautiful book!
You should pick it up!

This is a fabulous looking book with black edged pages and an attractive cover but most children would not pick up this book in a library or book shop due to its size. However, the text is interspersed with lots of drawings which move the story along and and make it not half so intimidating as it seems. The book has a great start which draws you in. I read this with a class of 10-11 year olds who mostly really enjoyed it.
