Hugo-novel-cover-01
The Invention of Hugo Cabret - written and illustrated by Brian Selznick - is a historical-fiction novel. The author uses over half of the book's 533 pages for pictures, relying on both text and pictures to tell the story. On the official site Selznick describes the book as "not exactly a novel, not quite a picture book, not really a graphic novel, or a flip book or a movie, but a combination of all these things."
