The Invention of Hugo Cabret

The Invention of Hugo Cabret


by Brian Selznick

Analysis: Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this story?


This is not the kind of book where anything remotely sexy even happens. In fact, if you said the word “sexy” to either Hugo or Isabelle, they’d probably just look at you and shout “yuck!” And we’re talking about the French, here, so this means that the book is completely and utterly tame. 

This is a book about the kind of stubborn, restless children who just want to go on adventures and solve mysteries. They don’t have the time or the patience for any steaminess.
