The book- The Invention Of Hugo Carbet is a interesting and adventurous book written by Brian Selznick. Brian Selznick is a illustrator of many celebrated picture books and novels and it includes Wonderstruck, The houdini box etc. The story starts with a boy named Hugo Cabret who steals toys from Uncle Georges of Isabelle to fit in the machine of the automaton which reveals a secret. The automaton was found by his father in the museum's attic ( where he works) and dies while working with the automaton. Before his father dies he hands over a book to Hugo with so many drawings and functions of automaton. Then his uncle takes him to one of the most busiest stations in the world- The Paris railway station. One day his uncle disappears and the boy lives alone with stealing, clocks and automaton. At the middle of the story Uncle Georges pretend that he has burnt the book ( which he does not ) and Hugo makes friendship with Isabelle (who's godfather is Georges). At last of the first part, Hugo finds the secret by finding all the right things to fit in the machine including a key ( which he finds in the necklace of Isabelle) and he finds the secret ( it was a moon which is a still in the world's most famous film- The trip to the moon). In the beginning of the second part they ( Hugo and Isabelle) finds that  there is a relation between the drawing and the uncle. They investigates this situation in a number of different ways and finds that Uncle Georges MADE FILMS!!!!!. That also the world's most famous and innovative films. Then they brings back Uncle Georges Into the film world again and Hugo invents the world's most greatest invention in the history of mankind- The Automaton ( which can not only reveal particular secret but can do all human activities). At last they ( including Hugo ) lives happily forever.

The book has a total number of 533 pages and it also has a huge number of illustrations which makes us understand more easily and it really looks like pictures coming to real life. It has a cost of 950 rupees and it is published by one of the greatest publisher- Scholastic world. The questions like- How Hugo brings back Uncle Georges into cinemas? How Hugo made the automaton work? How did the toys in uncle Georges's toy booth fit in his machine? is still a mystery until now. Don't think it is a huge book because it has only a short story and many instructions.  So you read it soon and find out and I hope you will like the book very much!!!!
