Better than being invisible is to imagine the invisible.
The Invisible takes you on an interactive journey with a boy who is a master in the art of disappearing and invites young readers to explore what it would be like to not be seen at home, at school, on the street, or anywhere.
Through the magic of illustrator and designer Andrés Sandoval’s bold artwork and the interplay of a red-green color scheme with red transparent overlays, turning the pages makes elements of the illustrations vanish and reappear. Children will enjoy sharing in the boy’s special talent and witness the transformative moment when he tires of not being seen.
First published in Brazil, The Invisible is the English-language translation of poet Alcides Villaça’s playful ode to his favorite childhood superpower.
