The Invention of Hugo Cabret

The Invention of Hugo Cabret

  

by Brian Selznick

Analysis: Tough-o-Meter

We've got your back. With the Tough-O-Meter, you'll know whether to bring extra layers or Swiss army knives as you summit the literary mountain. (10 = Toughest)

(2) Sea Level

Sure, the sheer size of this beast is more than a little daunting, but never fear, this isn’t a tough read at all. First of all, there are over 100 pictures to give you a break from all that reading. Secondly, the book is written in a very simple, easy-to-follow style. There are no tricks or complicated diversions here; the main goal is to tell a story about a little boy (in the kind of language that the little boy would understand), and the book succeeds.
