Aric, Henry, and Richard were lucky to be invisible when they entered the throne room. Find out why they were so lucky to be invisible.

I thought this book was great. I liked it because Richard’s teacher fell in love with his T-shirt. My favorite part of the book was when a girl in sixth grade kissed Richard. I liked it because it was funny. There were lots of illustrations. They were cool. They looked like the illustrations from Captain Underpants.

I recommend that children in grades 2 and up read this story, it was a good chapter book.
