As the little alien explains to Sam, being invisible can be a big help. A very funny adventure story by award-winning author Sally Gardner, in her MAGICAL CHILDREN series.

When his parents are lost in space, Sam is left in the care of the horrible neighbour Hilda Hardbottom. There he finds a tiny spaceship in the cabbage patch and meets a little alien called Splodge. Splodge loves ketchup, enjoys learning languages and can make himself – and Sam – invisible. How Sam uses this helpful new skill is a very funny and satisfying story for young readers.

Funny and exciting
Townsille Bulletin
A heart-warming and laugh-out-loud story with wonderful memorable characters
Middleton and North Manchester Guardian
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.
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.
The Invisible Boy has enough humour and action to keep less confident readers as well as assured readers turning the pages.
