Have you heard about the movie based on The Invention of Hugo Cabret?

Jude Law cast in Scorsese's 'Cabret'

It's set to be released in December 2011. I'm really excited to see what they do with it.

Here's a book video in which Brian Selznick talks about his book:

BookPage Notable Title
Orphan, clock keeper, thief: Hugo lives in the walls of a busy Paris train station, where his survival depends on secrets and anonymity. Combining elements of picture book, graphic novel, and film, Caldecott Honor artist Selznick breaks open the novel form to create an entirely new reading experience in this intricate, tender and spellbinding mystery.

A story told with many pictures and few words, author Brian Selznick won the Caldecott Medal for his work. Have you read it? I loved it.
