The Lovereading4Kids comment
Award-winning Brian Selznick goes behind the scenes to tell the story of the making of the blockbuster film of his best-selling The Invention of Hugo Cabret. The book was inspired by film which makes it especially fitting to see how its own film came about. Selznick’s fascinating account of how Martin Scorsese turned it into a 3D film is richly illustrated with originals from the book and stills from the film. This is an absolute must for all fans of the film and the original book, Hugo Cabret.

The Hugo Movie Companion by Brian Selznick
Brian Selznick takes readers on an intimate tour of the movie-making process as his Caldecott Award-winning book The Invention of Hugo Cabret is turned into a 3-D major motion picture by Academy Award-winning director, Martin Scorsese, written by Academy Award-nominated screenwriter, John Logan.
Lavishly illustrated with full-color photographs from the movie and filled with fun, informative interviews of the cast and crew, comparisons of artwork from the book alongside people, props, costumes, and sets from the movie, plus fascinating information about automatons, filmmaking pioneer Georges Melies and an essay on the birth of movies written by Martin Scorsese, The Hugo Movie Companion beautifully extends the experience of the book and the movie, and is a must-have for fans of all ages.
