The Lovereading4Kids comment

In 3 : invisible goodies – dastardly baddies – killer chickens (poultry-geists!) Steve Cole is a national treasure: creator of series such as Astrosaurs and Magic Ink, and now writing the Young Bond books, he’s delighted huge numbers of young readers with his ever inventive, clever, often very funny books and stories. Invisible Inc, in which a young boy is accidentally made invisible and then joins forces with a Victorian lady scientist, medieval knight and horse (all also invisible) to save the world, has all his trademarks: the action is fast and furious, the jokes are many and varied, and it all feels absolutely up to date, exactly the kind of book that today’s young readers want. Jim Field’s illustrations are the perfect complement to the text adding extra tension or humour as required. ~ Andrea Reece

Invisible Inc. by Steve Cole

Chaos, wizardry and a gang of kind-of ghosts, in this hilarious adventure from bestselling author, Steve Cole. Noah's mum's new invention can zap ANYTHING into a ghost of its former self.

When the sinister 'Seerblight Solutions' steal her invention, Noah is zapped - and finds he's not the first to have been turned 'invisible' through the ages. With all humankind in terrible danger, Earth's last line is defence is one you've never seen or heard of: Invisible Inc. A medieval knight. A Victorian inventor. A poetic pony. And an ordinary boy. Saving the world? THEY'LL SEE TO IT!
