Halloween Review/Giveaway: Invisible Inkling Dangerous Pumpkins. Ends Oct 31st

Invisible Inkling: Dangerous Pumpkins by Emily Jenkins illustrated by Harry Bliss

About the Book: 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.

My Review: Invisible Inkling Dangerous pumpkins is a story revolving around Hank and his invisible pet bandipat the Inkling who loves to eat pumpkins. Hank must try to prevent Inkling from eating the neighborhood’s Jack- O’-Lanterns.

Hank is also not a fan of Halloween because of his sister Nadia’s yearly scare. To him Halloween brings out the evil in her. She and her friends like to scare him and he didn’t find it funny at all. Hank is planning his revenge on Nadia while Inkling is taking action.

If your child loves the Wimpy Kid series they would like Invisible Inkling. The illustrations by Harry Bliss are in black and white and helps brings Inkling to life.

Ages: 7 and up

Pages: 160

  2. The kids love Halloween and this book would spark some great conversations about what type of costume Hank should wear. Another idea would be for me to copy the illustrations so the kids could color the illustrations.

  4. This would be a wonderful book to read the week of Halloween. We always have a Halloween party so this could be prior to that!

  5. I think my grandson would identify with Hank because he’s in fourth grade too, and Inkling’s ears resemble his chihuahua’s ears. Kids love to read books that are ‘scary’ in an age-appropriate way.

  7. This would be a great book to do a compare and contrast with the Diary of a Wimpy Kid. I also like the suggestions that the other people have posted.

  12. For the longest time, my son was afraid to go trick-or-treating, because he was afraid of the scary costumes that he saw. I’d like to share this book with him.
