The Lovereading4Kids comment
When Sam discovers his parents have become lost in space he must go with an alien named Splodge to find them. With his new talent of invisibility and a brand new spacecraft; he just might stand a chance. Funny imaginative and touching, the Invisible boy sees Sally Gardner writing at the height of her powers.
The Invisible Boy by Sally Gardner
When his parents are lost in space, Sam is left, heartbroken, in the care of the horrible Hilda Hardbottom. Then he finds a tiny spaceship in the cabbage patch and meets a little alien called Splodge. How Splodge makes him invisible, and how Sam uses his new talent in his darkest hour, makes a touching and extremely funny story with lovely memorable characters.
's yarn - absent parents, cruel foster parents - combined with the essential modern elements of aliens and magic. But Gardner tells it lightly with much charm and a good deal of humour. Much of the comedy comes from Splodge's imperfect mastery of English: 'I come in peas. Take me to your chef.'
-washer spaceship. It's a gentle, enjoyable read that will appeal to five- to seven-year-olds. (Kirkus UK)
