The Invisible Boy


When Mr and Mrs Ray win a once-in-a-lifetime trip to the moon, there is just one problem- who will look after Sam? It seems their only option is to accept a surprise offer of help from their neighbour, Mrs Hardbottom. If Sam and his parents had realised the REAL reason Mrs Hardbottom was so keen to child mind, they would not have been so grateful.

Sam’s parents’ unexpected disappearance leaves Sam in a predicament as unbending as a ‘cement wall.’ That is, until a tomato ketchup guzzling alien appears, off course, in the back yard of the Hardbottom’s rainy bungalow….
