Description


It's Halloween. Fourth grader Hank Wolowitz hates Halloween. Every year his older sister, Nadia, scares him half to death.

This year might be different, though. After all, Hank's the only kid in Brooklyn—probably the only kid in North America—with an invisible bandapat living in his laundry basket. And Invisible Inkling loves Halloween. Pumpkins are his favorite food.

But Hank has serious trouble stopping Inkling from devouring every jack-o'-lantern in their neighborhood. And that's not his only problem: Will he figure out a cool costume? Will he survive the small army of ballerinas roaming the hallways of his building? Will Hank ever get revenge on Nadia?

Inkling has long since stopped listening to Hank's worries.

Inkling is taking action.

About the Author


Emily Jenkins is the author of Invisible Inkling, the first book featuring Hank and Inkling. She has also written the chapter books Toys Go Out, Toy Dance Party, and Toys Go Home, plus a lot of picture books, including The Little Bit Scary People, That New Animal, and Five Creatures. She has worn the same butterfly costume for the past nine Halloweens, and if she has an invisible friend—she's not telling.

Praise for Invisible Inkling: Dangerous Pumpkins…


“Gentle humor and a realistic urban setting add interest to this solid middle-grade read. Appealing any time of the year.”
-Kirkus Reviews

“Jenkins’s chapter book fantasy, with its strong sense of place and realistic family dynamic, will have new readers wishing for an invisible pal of their own. Bliss’s droll illustrations allow readers to see Inkling in all his furry glory, even when the characters in the book do not.”
-The Horn Book

“The Halloween details, from giant eyeballs to black spiderwebs, in Bliss’ wry, spot drawings add to the farce, and kids will appreciate both the conflicts and Hank’s warm bond with his bossy sidekick.”
-Booklist
