Magical Children: The Invisible Boy Synopsis

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.

Magical Children: The Invisible Boy Press Reviews

The Invisible Boy has enough humour and action to keep less confident readers as well as assured readers turning the pages. * BOOKS FOR KEEPS * Funny imaginative and touching, the Invisible boy sees Sally Gardner writing at the height of her powers. * LOVEREADING4KIDS * A heart-warming and laugh-out-loud story with wonderful memorable characters * Middleton and North Manchester Guardian * Funny and exciting * Townsille Bulletin * What makes Gardner's book special is not just the cleverness of its plot, but its charming linguistic zaniness... It's a pleasure to read - to yourself and aloud. * SUNDAY TELEGRAPH * This story sparkles with originality and appealing out-of-the-ordinary events to provide a rivetting read. * JUNIOR MAGAZINE * Gardner's playful hyperbole and spry pen-and-inks are certain kid-pleasers. Ages 7-up. * PUBLISHERS WEEKLY *
