Overview

What's a girl to do when her parents won't let her get a puppy? If she's fifth-grader Billie Stoner and has a baby-sitter who also happens to be a teenage mad scientist, she can make her pet turn invisible! But Billie soon finds that keeping her new dog, Harry Houdini, under wraps isn't as easy as she had hoped-especially in her tiny Manhattan apartment. To begin with, he still smells like a puppy, feels like a puppy, and worst of all, sounds like a puppy. There are only so many times Billie can pretend to be barking before her parents thinks she's going crazy! And with her evil classmate, Alissa, catching on to the secret, just how long can Billie keep Harry concealed? Fans of The Invisible Day, which Publishers Weekly called a sure-fire crowd pleaser, will warmly welcome Marthe Jocelyn's unforgettable cast of zany characters, as well as some exciting new additions. With Abby Carter's quirky pencil illustrations, both delightfully funny and contemporary, this easy-to-read novel will be an instant hit with hip young readers. Marthe Jocelyn is a successful toy maker and children's-clothing designer who also illustrates books. Abby Carter is the illustrator of many children's books, including The Invisible Day. Marthe Jocelyn lives in New York City.
