The Invisible Boy is a charming, short and sweet book about a group of students in Italy who find a strange magician’s cape in an abandoned house and decide to play a prank on the boy, Marco, who takes the cape home.
The watercolour illustrations are really cute, and it has an important message about exclusion and isolation among peers, and the kindness of including those who are shy or tend to linger away from the crowd for one reason or another. Marco feels like a ghost for only a day, but he finds he has a friend who feels like that all of the time.
Anti-bullying and inclusive books are always vital. It’s impossible to have too many, and I would recommend this one.
Thanks to the author for sending me a copy in exchange for an honest review. 🙂
