The Invention of Hugo Cabret (Paperback) Price: Rs. 1,717

The Invention Of Hugo Cabret is a novel that revolves around an orphan boy, Hugo Cabret, who fixes his father’s broken automation that transforms his life completely.

Summary Of The Book

The Invention Of Hugo Cabret is a historical fiction novel that documents the life of an orphan boy, named Hugo Cabret, who lives at the busy Parisian railway station. He works along with his uncle, as the clock keeper of the station. He’s left with no other option but to tend to the clocks, as his uncle suddenly disappears from the scene. Life becomes tougher by the day, but Hugo needs to keep clock tending, otherwise, he will be kicked out from the station.

When Hugo gets some spare time, he spends it working on his late father’s damaged automation, which he managed to save from an old museum’s ruins. Hugo only has a booklet of directions that will help him fix it. He believes that once the device is fixed, it will convey a message from his father. Hugo then makes it his priority to fix the device, even if it means stealing certain pieces that are needed. He then steals a wind-up mouse from the station’s toy booth.

After getting caught by the owner, Georges Melies, he works for Georges to clear off the debt for the toys he has taken over time. He soon finds out that Isabelle’s got the key required to make the automation work. Hugo and Isabelle turn the key together to find out what the automation draws on paper. After it finishes drawing, it signs with Papa Georges name. Isabelle then grabs the drawing, to show Mama Jeanne and Papa George. It is not too long after that Rene Tabard and Etienne visit Georges home to take him back to his past. He then sends Hugo to the station to recapture the automation, however, Hugo is caught by the Station Inspector. Is Hugo able to retrieve the automation? Read on to find out.
