Contains: The Strongest Girl in the World, The Invisible Boy, The Boy who could Fly.
Each of the Magical Children stories is about a child with a special gift. In The Invisible Boy, Sam is left in the care of the horrible Hilda Hardbottom when his parents go missing on a trip to the moon and makes friends with a little alien calls Splodge who shows him how to become invisible. The Strongest Girl in the World is about Josie Jenkins, aged 8, who suddenly finds that she can lift up a double decker bus with no effort at all and learns to live with the vicissitudes of fame and fortune. The Boy who Could Fly is Thomas Top, who is granted a birthday wish by the Fat Fairy and finds that his new talent has a wonderful effect on his whole life.
