I’m not going to say much about this week’s Throwback Thursday pick, the Caldecott Medal-winning The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick, except that it is a remarkable book worthy of all the praise heaped upon it. I could say more, but I think you’re probably better off visiting the official The Invention of Hugo Cabret site, which has tons of great information and links (even if it does look very ‘cutting edge circa 2007’— but hey, it is Throwback Thursday!).
So, in summary: Read the book, visit the website, and maybe even watch Hugo, the movie based on the book.
