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.
Funny imaginative and touching, the Invisible boy sees Sally Gardner writing at the height of her powers.
Funny and exciting

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