    This book Charlie Bone and the Invisible Boy is really good and interesting and adds on to the great series of Charlie Bone. It’s a good addition to the series and adds lots of details and depth to tiny parts of the story. I like it because it’s also mysterious and adventurous. If you like mysteries or adventures then I suggest you read the Charlie Bones series by order.

    I didn’t like this one as much as the first two, but it was entertaining. It felt like a stand alone book, and not quite part of a series. The plot just wasn’t as interesting - boy is invisible, need to find a way to help. That’s fine, but it just didn’t grab my attention very much.

    I do wish the "bad guys" in this series were just a bit badder... the stakes need to be risen! Everyone seems to be mean, but then they end up cooking breakfast for each other anyway.

    I really enjoyed this book. It may be my favorite in the series so far. I like how so much of Charlie’s support network is taken away and he has to do things himself for most of the book, and I like how there are so many pieces of this book which all come together. Looking forward to the next installment in Charlie and his friends’ adventures.

    I remember being OBSESSED with this one as a kid and now I remember why! Really good mix of scary, heartwarming, and mysterious. Here is where the books get darker, but in an excellent and not excessive manner.

    This is a good series for young readers. Similar to Harry Potter, but less complex.

    5/5 (keeping all the Charlie Bone series at five stars since thats how I rated it as a child; however, if I had read for the first time recently it definitely would be lower due to certain issues) Overall, this is a really good book. I do think this book takes a vastly different approach and development of the plot and characters compared to the previous books. One of the stand out things was that there was more development between each of the characters.

I do think this book takes a vastly different approach and development of the plot and characters compared to the previous books. One of the stand out things was that there was more development between each of the characters. Charlie gets a better understanding of his own power and I think gets more brave to do the right thing. Lysander also learns more about his power and what it means to be communicating with his ancestors. I also really adored the scenes of the children with adults who encouraged and helped them rather than putting them down. I also think the plot was a fun ride all the way through. My one gripe is the same as the past two books. The author definitely doesn’t know how to describe POC characters. for example, Bindi is completely gone in this book, and we don’t really get a good explanation for it. Sometimes, Lysander is just referred to as “the African” as if there isn’t more to his own personal style and look. This bothers me because she does a good job developing their character but doesn’t seem to have put the same thought into describing them as the white characters. Overall, I’m still enjoying this childhood book, but also noticing all the flaws I missed as a child as well.

    Charlie Bone and his friends discover an invisible boy living up in the music tower at Bloor's Academy. His name is Ollie Sparks, and they soon discover that Mr. Baldova, tier art teacher, is Ollie's father. Ollie tells them that he had gotten turned invisible by a blue boa. Only his big toe remained visible. The Bloors like to own people, so naturally they try to stop Charlie from making Ollie visible again. Can Charlie and friends succeed in their quest?

I am already a fan of Jenny Nimmo's books, but I think I liked this one especially. It was filled with hilarious comments, and she did a fantastic job of describing the settings and people. I think, in this book, Billy was my favorite character; he played a huge role. Billy can talk to animals. With some persuasion, the eight-year-old talks to the blue boa, convincing him to turn Ollie visible again: without Billy, the entire rescue would have been a disaster! Little, cute, helpful; Billy is my favorite character, even though, in previous books, he's made some dark choices. I also like this book because it reminded me of when I helped save some one from disaster..and succeed.

Charlie Bone is up to his usual shenanigans as a lovable idiot, at a school where he has the power to communicate with paintings. But this time around he is able to do something that he has never done before: take a powerful, and possibly evil wizard out of a painting. With him causing havoc, an invisible boy wandering throughout the school, an evil blue boa, and extremely evil relative of charlie Bone's, that could be the cause of his beloved Uncle's demise, or maybe even his father's supposed death. While this book had many interesting plot points, they seemed to be too coincidentally interrelated, and everything fell together too nicely at the end of the novel. Things would have been better if there would have been a little bit of a cliffhanger leftover for the next book in the series, as there are several more in this series. But overall, decent book, with okay characters, and I will read more of the series in the future, but it might be because I have already prepurchased several of the books.

    This is my review. The book begins with Benjamin going over to Charlies House with his Dog that he asks Charlie to take care of while he is in Hong Kong. Charlie hides the dog with a fear of his grandmother finding it because of the possible consequences. The book did not really intrigue me and i found it boring so hopefully i will find a better book in september.

    I quickly read this after finishing the second book in the series, both because I have a deadline and because I enjoyed it tremendously. I'm so happy I decided to continue this series! With each new additional story, I fall further for the story and characters. Though I wouldn't say it's perfect, it's got me hooked. I'm very excited to read the next book!

    Charlie and his friends run into more trouble while attending Bloor Academy. Blue snakes and big toes. Music teachers and Welsh magicians. Turncoats and taking chances. And always the chimes at midnight. Answers a few questions even as it raises more. Well told!

    Sort of a cross between Harry Potter and X-men with a dash of Roald Dahl and John Bellair, but not quite up to the same level as any of them. I don't find them to be highly developed in either plot or characters. But in the midst of quarantine and family crisis they are comfortable place-holders for my reading space. This is about the level I can aspire to right now, and it's better for me to keep reading than to be frittering my time away arguing with people who are being wrong on the internet. Sort of a cross between Harry Potter and X-men with a dash of Roald Dahl and John Bellair, but not quite up to the same level as any of them. I don't find them to be highly developed in either plot or characters. But in the midst of quarantine and family crisis they are comfortable place-holders for my reading space. This is about the level I can aspire to right now, and it's better for me to keep reading than to be frittering my time away arguing with people who are being wrong on the internet. The basic premise of the series is that once there was a magnificent and mysterious African king who had ten children. His wife died, he retreated in sorrow and pain. The ten children split, and five of them were wicked and five were good, and their descendants have been fighting each other every since in an ongoing battle between good and evil. It is not clear to me if good is supposed to win or if they are only supposed to maintain balance. I am not emotionally invested in this question, since, as I have said, these are quarantine comfort reads and space-holders. Their descendants also have various 'endowmens' or super powers. There does not seem to be a lot of rhyme or reason between who inherits what, and the Red King's descendants might descend from Spanish swordsmen, African shamans and Nordic vikings, and could include Indian girls who can betwitch clothing, an albino who talks to animals, and Polish telekinetics, werebeasts from a northern tribe and basically anything that strikes the author's fancy I suppose. Currently, when I find I am losing the battle between choosing to read or choosing to argue with people who will insist on being wrong on the internet, I download another Charlie Bone book via internet library loan. This is not a bad niche for a book to hold, IMO.

    Charlie gets to know Mr. Boldova who is using an alias to hide from an evil shapeshifter Yolanda Yewbeam who, in turn, appears as a beautiful blonde girl appropriately named Belle with ever-changing eye colour. Mr Boldova, an art teacher at Bloors, is Samuel Sparks who is looking for his long lost brother Ollie. Charlie and his friends find him, or his toe, by accident. Ollie was enchanted by a blue silvery boa whose hugs make things invisible. Once again, Charlie and his friends including Mr. O Charlie gets to know Mr. Boldova who is using an alias to hide from an evil shapeshifter Yolanda Yewbeam who, in turn, appears as a beautiful blonde girl appropriately named Belle with ever-changing eye colour. Mr Boldova, an art teacher at Bloors, is Samuel Sparks who is looking for his long lost brother Ollie. Charlie and his friends find him, or his toe, by accident. Ollie was enchanted by a blue silvery boa whose hugs make things invisible. Once again, Charlie and his friends including Mr. Onimous and the three magical cats help reunite Mr. Boldova with Ollie. Early in the book, Charlie's Uncle Paton disappears for several days and is in a daze when he returns. An early nemesis, Skarpo the Sorcerer, escapes out of the picture when Ollie visits but asks Charlie to help him return. As a gift, Skarpo tells Charlie of vervain plant which will help revive Paton. Emma's Aunt Julia Ingledew becomes an unintentional target when she puts on an enchanted belt which resists removal and restricts breathing. Luckily, Uncle Paton is revived by this point and comes to her rescue. Ollie is returned to his home Sparkling Castle with his brother Samuel alias Mr. Boldova. Yolanda does not bother to hide her true old, ugly self once she is discovered. Not as exciting as Harry Potter but just as intriguing if you like stories with magic. In this story, Charlie lead his friends in solving the mystery and fight the evil magical community.

The book also challenges you to remember parts of the book before it, and make inferences on what is going to happen next. I think that anybody who has read the book "The Final Empire" by Brandon Sanderson would really like this book.

    The best entry so far in the series. Stakes are a little higher here. As always I love the atmosphere of Bloor’s Academy. I find it richly described. I also really enjoy that time is split between the academy and home. It gives the story a little more grounding and realism outside of the fantastical elements. As an adult I can see some of the clues being left for what I anticipate to be a big reveal later in the series but as a child I didn’t pick up any of this.

    Honestly, I Just love how every character teamed up together in this and I'm starting to see the sides of the good and bad. I love how as we read each book there is more and more character development within the books and we find out more and more about each character and what their endowments entail.

    I'm continuing this series because it means a lot to a sweet boy. This installment lacked a bit of the excitement of the first two books, IMO, but I find that I am still very much invested in the story, and most curious to see how everything works out for Charlie and his friends. Audiobook performance: excellent - I am a big fan of this narrator!
