Book Description

6 Jun 2002 MAGICAL CHILDREN (Book 1)
When his parents are lost in space, Sam is left, heartbroken, in the care of the horrible Hilda Hardbottom. Then he finds a tiny spaceship in the cabbage patch and meets a little alien called Splodge. How Splodge makes him invisible, and how Sam uses his new talent in his darkest hour, makes a touching and extremely funny story with lovely memorable characters.

5.0 out of 5 stars nice little book 3 Jan 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Great book for young reader. Bought for my 6 year old boy, who loves reading. Quite complicated text in parts i thought (what 6 year old knows what a ford cortina is?), but a great story and he enjoyed it. Recommend wither for good reader to read themselves or for a bedtime story as it has nice short chapters.
