Product Description

Ben longs for the father he has never known. Rose dreams of a mysterious actress whose life she chronicles in a scrapbook. And when Ben discovers a puzzling clue in his mother’s room and Rose reads a strange headline in the newspaper, both children set out alone on desperate quests to find what they are missing… The stories of these two children, set fifty years apart, are woven together with mesmerising symmetry in words and dazzling pictures. How they unfold and ultimately intertwine will surprise you, challenge you, and leave you breathless with wonder. Rich, complex and beautiful, this is a staggering triumph from a uniquely gifted artist and visionary.

Praise for The Invention of Hugo Cabret:

“Brian Selznick seems to have invented a new kind of book… A multilayered box of delights.” Guardian

“A true masterpiece.” Publishers Weekly
