Invisible Stanley

Written by Jeff Brown • Illustrated by Steve Bjorkman

Reviewed by Wendy L (age 7)

Poor Stanley got up in the middle of a thunderstorm and ate some fruit. The next morning his brother, Arthur could hear him, but couldn't see him. Mrs. Lambchop took him to the doctor, but he couldn't help. Mrs. Lambchop put a balloon on Stanley's wrist so she could keep track of him. Invisible Stanley had many adventures. He went to school, played in the park, spied on people and even went on T.V.

My favorite part was when Stanley's mom made him wear a balloon so she would know where he was. The balloon had a face just like Stanley's. It made me wish I could be invisible so I could help people or spy on people.

The illustrations helped me visualize Stanley when he was invisible. Be careful though, sometimes Stanley would tie his balloon to a chair so he could spy!

I recommend this book because it makes you use your imagination and it made me laugh. I want to read all of the Stanley books.
