Overview

The third book in the Children of the Red King series, CHARLIE BONE AND THE INVISIBLE BOY offers more magical fantasy that is fast paced and easy to read.

This semester at Bloor's Academy brings a few changes. There is a new art teacher, Mr. Boldova, and a new student named Belle, who lives with the Yewbeam aunts and seems to have strange power over them. Emma and Charlie soon discover Mr. Boldova's secret identity: He is the older brother of Ollie Sparks, the boy who lives in the attic of Bloor's Academy. Ollie had always been prying into matters that didn't concern him, so Ezekiel Bloor had made him invisible. When Charlie and his friends find him, Ollie is alone and hungry, so they promise to help him become visible again.

The Barnes & Noble Review
Jenny Nimmo's spellbinding series continues with Charlie Bone setting out to help an invisible boy as the ominous presence of a new girl at Bloor's threatens to stop him. In Nimmo's third installment, Charlie's nasty aunts bring home a mysterious girl named Belle, whose eyes constantly change color and who has a knack for calling the shots. Charlie is wary of her, but when he learns that Ollie, an invisible boy, needs help regaining his shape, the adventurous descendant of the Red King decides to put his fears aside to help. Through a series of surprising plot twists, Charlie realizes that the new girl is more powerful (and older!) than he ever imagined, while Ollie's invisible plight has been caused by a magical snake. It's up to Charlie -- with the help of Skarpo, Uncle Paton, and his school chums -- to put things right, and readers are sure to have a blast until the last page. Nimmo keeps the suspense high and the action coming throughout the book, developing the story line by introducing striking new characters and delivering juicy plot morsels to keep audiences on the edge of their seats. For a great episode and more insight into the Children's history, don't pass this one up. Matt Warner
