This is a unit plan for the remarkable Caldecott Medal winning book The Invention of Hugo Cabret written and wonderfully illustrated byBrian Selznick. I created this unit in 2012 to coincide with the release of the excellent movie version of the book. It was 'road tested' with an enthusiastic reader and grade four girl who started at Glen Park PS last year. It is an ideal book for personal reading (not really suitable as a serial.) We expanded the unit to include other French classics such as The Phantom of the Opera and The Hunchback of Notre Dame.The unit worked well and I'd use it again possibly adding The Man in the Iron Mask and The Three Musketeers.
