The Invention of Hugo Cabret

by Brian Selznick

When Hugo's father, a clockmaker, is killed in a fire, he's taken in by his uncle. They live together in a hidden room inside the walls of the Paris train station, where it's his job to maintain the station clocks -- until one night he disappears. Now Hugo is alone, still living inside the station walls, stealing to survive, and still maintaining the clocks so no one will know his uncle is gone.

Hugo also works on an automaton, a mechanical man, that his father was trying to restore. He steals parts from a toyshop in the station. When he is caught, the mean store owner takes away his father's notebook and threatens him with arrest. But the old man's hidden past and Hugo's are intertwined, and the secret message hidden in the automaton's workings is only the beginning.

So You Want to Be President?

Illustrated by David Small

text by Judith St. George

This witty and sometimes irreverent book

introduces the Presidency and the men who

have filled that office, from George

Washington to George W. Bush. The book is

not organized chronologically. Instead the

Presidents are grouped and compared

in original and amusing ways. One page

organizes the Presidents by first names: your best chance at the Presidency is to be named James! Other pages compare Presidents by physical size, spending habits, previous occupations, leisurepursuits and marital status. The comparisons show the Presidents

as real, sometimes flawed, human beings.

Black and White

by David Macaulay

A robber hides out in a herd of cattle who, in turn, disrupt the passage of a train. At the train station, passengers at first are absorbed in the newspapers they are reading, but as the wait lengthens, they start playing with the newspapers and with each other. A boy, a passenger on the train, witnesses some of the events, but not all of them. Parents, previously staid and distant, have apparently changed, at least temporarily, because of their time spent waiting for the train that day. The book can be frustratingly confusing or, in the proper hands and minds, a challenge and a source of fascination.
