This week’s winner is a book that is really neat. Most Caldecott Medal winners are picture books or story books, but this book is a chapter book! It is called The invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick. It won the Caldecott Medal in 2008. It is a very long book, 533 pages!, but that is because it is full of so many pictures. Half of the story is told in words and half of the story is told in pictures.
I like this book a lot. It is about a boy who lives in a Paris train station in 1931. That’s 82 years ago! That’s a long time! Things were very different back then. I like looking at the pictures in the book and seeing all the differences. What differences will you spot?
