A book by Emily Jenkins

Wolowitz is Hilarious!

Hank Wolowitz is a complex kid who likes to build the Great Wall of China out of match sticks with her downstairs neighbor/friend Chin, who likes to invent new ice cream flavors like his latest cheddar cheese bunny, and he also likes to save ivisible creatures from the clutches of Rootbeer, the dog that lives in Wolowitz’s building.

Okay, so Wolowitz has an overactive imagination, but this isn’t his imagination. He’s actually just rescued an invisible creature, a Bandapat named Inkling who has come to Brooklyn on a very specific mission: to find squash. But Wolowitz doesn’t have squash, and finding it is the least of his problems. What he has is a bully, a mean looking one that is out to take his sprinkles and make his life miserable. That is, until Inkling steps in.

 Invisible Inkling written by Emily Jenkins is a laugh out loud kind of book. From the very first page to the very last, readers will find themselves laughing – either at Inklinkg’s quick wit, or Wolowitz’s antics. Readers will appreciate Jenkins apparent sense of humor.

Fit for kids of all ages, Invisible Inkling is well written, imaginative, and full of realistically lovable characters – characters that young readers will easily be able to identify and sympathize with. Wolowitz is openly honest, and in many ways a typical fourth grader struggling with many fourth grade issues, like bullying. Jenkins deals with the issue of bullies and bullying with tact, and excels at it.

About this book

Wiki

INVISIBLE INKLING is charming, fresh, and funny. Now I want an invisible friend of my own! (Sara Pennypacker, author of the New York Times bestselling Clementine series )

“Thoughtfully grounded, gently kooky chapter book. Jenkins colors her mostly realistic tale with enough bits of mystery and silliness to hold readers’ attention” (Publishers Weekly )

“Gently humorous and nicely realistic (with the obvious exception of the invisible Peruvian Bandapat). Anyone who who has ever had an imaginary friend will appreciate sassy Inkling (who’s invisible-not imaginary).” (Kirkus Reviews )
