A heart-warming and laugh-out-loud story with wonderful memorable characters
Middleton and North Manchester Guardian
Funny and exciting
Townsille Bulletin
Funny imaginative and touching, the Invisible boy sees Sally Gardner writing at the height of her powers.
Gardner's playful hyperbole and spry pen-and-inks are certain kid-pleasers. Ages 7-up.
The Invisible Boy has enough humour and action to keep less confident readers as well as assured readers turning the pages.
This story sparkles with originality and appealing out-of-the-ordinary events to provide a rivetting read.
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.
