Introducing Ryan, Spilling Ink Guest Contributer

Two people I really admire are Seth, in my class, and my dad. Seth is very generous and willing to do everything for his friends. My dad is really funny and it's hard to get him upset. They are both very self confident and cheer others to success, no matter what.
    If you mix them together, you would get my mom. Although, I am not saying that my mom is better than them. She's giving and funny. She's also self confident, believes in others, and you can't get her upset very easily.
    I think my mom is also very observant. For instance... one time she was walking down the street and a man handed her a sealed carton and says "Don't let anything happen to this". She has the ability to observe or investigate.


Hugo Cabret

                                                                    Hugo Cabret
       Hugo Cabret is about a little boy that lives in the walls of a train station and fixes the clocks. Hugo loves to make little machines with left over parts from his old robots.
    I like Hugo Cabret because it is full of mystery and intrigue!
        In the story, Hugo finds an automaton,which is a robot that can write and draw old movie picture. He can even sign the artist's name at the bottom. The picture looks like a real person did it in the first place!
         On a scale of 1-5 I would give it a....... 4 because it was a little sad when the automaton did not start to work.
         Everyone should read Hugo Cabret because you will find out how you would live inside a train station with barly any food and barly any space to sleep, live, and eat. ( when you have food)
