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.

Lancashire Evening Post, 8 June 2002 "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, 14 July 2002 "The Invisible Boy has enough humour and action to keep less confident readers as well as assured readers turning the pages." Books for Keeps "A heartwarming and engaging story with wonderful memorable characters." Family Interest Magazine, September/October 2002
