Hugo? What's That?
I know what you're thinking. You're running through all the things named Hugo that might be important enough to feature on our library blog. I bet you thought of Victor Hugo, author of The Hunchback of Notre Dame. You might even have come up with the Hugo Award, which recognizes excellent science fiction and fantasy every year. But I'm referring to the Hugo created by Brian Selznick in his groundbreaking, Caldecott Award-winning book The Invention of Hugo Cabret. Martin Scorsese has brought it to theatres, and it is getting rave reviews. Read the book first (of course you will), then take a trip to the movies and see why everyone's talking about Hugo.
Oh, one more thing. If you love it as much as I think you will, I have GREAT news! Brian Selznick has a new book out -- Wonderstruck. And it doesn't disappoint.
