Things Not Seen
By: Andrew Clements
Things Not Seen is about a boy who wakes up and “dissolves in the shower”; in other words he’s invisible. Of course, when he goes and tells his mom and dad they tell him to stop the prank. They pay more attention when a wet towel with nothing inside drinks orange juice, though. They decide they can’t tell anybody because if the government finds out every scientist will be testing him. This is hard because from the boy, Bobby’s, point of view he has the nosiest neighbor in the world. So, he can’t leave the house. Well, what if something happens to his mom and dad?
My favorite character is Alicia. She is a blind girl who Bobby comes to be friends with because Alicia can’t see that she can’t see him. She comes to be very helpful to Bobby.
Andrew Clements is also the author of Frindle. I’ve heard of Frindle, but I’ve never read it. I’m hoping to read it at some point. If you have, comment about what you thought.
This book is for fourth-sixth graders.
I give this book 5 out of 5 bookworms.
