Charlie and his friend Marv have invented an invisibility potion to help them find strange and tricky creatures, which they would prefer to do without Charlie's little sister, Lola, bothering and interrupting. But when Lola enlists a bit of help from her invisible friend, Soren Lorensen - not to mention a tea set, a rabbit, a stroller, and of course one or three glasses of pink mil k- it turns out that the strange and tricky creatures have met their match in one very resourceful, inventive little sister.

Yet another delightful Charlie and Lola adventure, "Slightly Invisible" engages the imagination and make you want pink milk.

Lola is seemingly bothering and interrupting Charlie and Marv when in fact, it is Lola and her invisible friend Soren Lorenson that have the solution to catching the 'strange and terrifyingly tricky creature.'

Love the creative cut-out art used to put the pictures together and I also love the text layout.

This review comes with a warning: your children may ask you to read this book so many times that you may begin to loathe the names 'Charlie and Lola.' Antidote, hide the book for a few days and revisit once you've had a break!

A must read !
Fun with a lesson.
Good for introducing children to the idea of imagination and giving family a little space and not be bothering or interrupting!
