The Invention of Hugo Cabret; another movie from shelves of the library

Another award winner book has been released as a movie this holiday season, The Invention of Hugo Cabret, written and illustrated by Brian Selznick.  The book, which is a cross between a picture book and novel, includes in its title the description "a novel in words and pictures," was the 2008 Caldecott Award winner, the highest literary award for illustrations.

So it is with interest that I share the trailer, and hope to see this film during the holiday season.  Directed by esteemed and award winning Martin Scorsese, the film is 3-d, and sure to please!!
