The invention of Hugo Cabret

The characters in this book are:
  • Hugo 
  • Dad
  • Uncle Claude
  • Isabelle
  • Mama Jeanne
  • The station inspector
  • Papa Georges 
  • Ettien 
  • Monsieur Tabard            

The main character Hugo finds out that his father dies in the museum that his father worked. The uncle of  Hugo Claude comes and makes him work on the clocks. Till one day his uncle Claude does not come back and guess what ? He gets thrown on to the river. Hugo works at a toy booth in the train station where Papa Georges works.Hugo has a notebook that papa Georges stole him. Hugo finds a automaton at the museum after the fire that killed his dad. At one moment of the book Isabelle and Hugo fight for the automaton. I think my favorite part is when Hugo steels some milk at the cafe and after they see him but they do not chase him after which is weird.

Here is where the story mainly takes place:
