WIJFR: The Invention of Hugo Cabret

I grabbed this a couple of days ago when I was at the library just because the pictures are so gorgeous...

 You guys, I LOVED this book! I thought it was so well done- the writing was crisp and the pictures were wonderful and the story moved along really well... I mean, I just really enjoyed it.

If you have/know any middle schoolers, this would be great for them. If you don't, pick it up any way. So, so good.

Has anyone seen the movie? Is it worth my time? I looked at some stills last night (to see who they cast for each part) and it looks like it was really pretty too.
