Invisible Jerry

USD $17.99 Tax Included

People don’t notice Jerry. If someone bumps into him, they don’t say sorry. If he makes a joke, no one laughs. He never gets picked last for sports teams — but that’s because he never gets picked at all. It’s like he’s invisible. Until Molly comes along. Molly asks Jerry his opinion. She laughs with him. She sees him. This is a picture book with humour and heart for everyone who has ever felt like they’re on the outside looking in.

SPECIFICATIONS: Hardback | 245 x 255 mm | 9.5 x 10 inches | Colour | 32 Pages

Adam Wallace is a New York Times bestselling author, who has also had one of his books be a question on Jeopardy, and has also had one of his books read at the White House! Adam enjoys writing more than anything, but he likes drawing too, and doesn’t mind long walks on the beach at sunset. Adam’s previous books include How to Catch a Leprechaun and How to Catch an Elf (both New York Times bestsellers), How to Catch the Easter Bunny (read at the 2017 White House Easter Egg Roll), The Vanilla Slice Kid and SPARK.

Giuseppe Poli loved making drawings, stories and games as a kid. He grew up and went on a long, wandering adventure into computer graphics, games, feature film visual effects and IT, and then realized that he missed making his own stories. And that’s when he stumbled into the world of children’s picture books. Now not-so-young Giuseppe is back doing what he loves best: making drawings and stories, and hopefully delighting people for many more years to come. He is the illustrator of five previous picture books: Hootie the Cutie, Fearless with Dad, Oliver’s Grumbles, The Wheelchair Adventure and Baby Band.

Books for Keeps review article
Highly emotionally charged, they (the illustrations) show children being careless of others unintentionally and the hurt this can cause.  It’s a great way for a class to learn that children who appear different have needs too and that they must be sensitive to this possibility.  There well may be joys in doing so.”

Bob’s Books review article
“Brilliant watercolour illustrations that enhance the text and the loneliness that Jerry feels. You can tell what is happening without reading the text. The true test of a good picture book. Excellent for dealing with feelings with juniors.” Click here to read.
