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.

Enjoyable But Light Fantasy, December 28, 2006 By drebbles Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) Charlie Bone's friend Benjamin Brown is going to Hong Kong with his parents and wants Charlie to look after his dog Runner Bean. Charlie reluctantly agrees since he knows Grandma Bone won't let the dog stay. Charlie has other problems, for one thing his Uncle Paton, the one person to stand up to Grandma Bone, is missing and when he does return he is deathly ill. There's a new student at Bloor's Academy named Belle who is staying with his Yewbeam aunts and Charlie suspects that she's not who she says she is. There's another mystery at Bloor's - Charlie discovers there's an invisible boy, Ollie Sparks, hiding in the attics. Ollie's brother is teaching at Bloor's under the name of Mr. Boldova, in the hope of finding Ollie. Add in a crazed sorcerer who is terrorizing the streets around Bloor's Academy and Charlie has his hands full this semester! While The Children of the Red King series resembles the Harry Potter books quite a bit (Charlie even has a wand now), they can be enjoyed on their own merit. Unlike the Potter books however, this series is written strictly for the younger set, who will enjoy the books, but adults like myself may find them a bit frustrating. The fantasy elements of the series are quite well done. However, the writing at times seems loose and sloppy. Characters such as Benjamin come and go as if Jenny Nimmo didn't quite know what to do with them. This comes across as poor planning, which is a shame, because as the series moves along it's clear that Nimmo knows what she is doing (at last we know who let Emma out of the locked room in book 1). The viewpoint in "Charlie Bone and the Invisible Boy" shifts from character to character, which can be a bit disconcerting. I realize the books are aimed at children and I'm all for any books that will get children to read, but I wish the writing were a bit tighter. "Charlie Bone and the Invisible Boy" is a good, if light fantasy.
