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.

Review:

Gardner's playful hyperbole and spry pen-and-inks are certain kid-pleasers. Ages 7-up. (PUBLISHERS WEEKLY)

This story sparkles with originality and appealing out-of-the-ordinary events to provide a rivetting read. (JUNIOR MAGAZINE)

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)

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. (LOVEREADING4KIDS)

The Invisible Boy has enough humour and action to keep less confident readers as well as assured readers turning the pages. (BOOKS FOR KEEPS)

This is a fun read that easily grabs the attention. The text is full of things that children specifically love - spaceships, tomato ketchup, torches in bed and the rest. Of course, a reader the calibre of Andrew Sachs does the story full justice on the accompanying CD, making it a magical duo indeed! (www.FromBumptoGrump.co.uk)
