“Gosh, are you ok?” Olivier stopped to help this person up, noticing as he did so that the fellow was wearing a funny little coat that appeared to be made of potato peels all stitched together. As well, he had on green pants that were made of the small, overlapping leaves of Brussels sprouts and shoes that were completely covered in blue mould. He also had a bulging leather satchel slung over one shoulder.

“Don’t step on my shoes,” snarled the little guy. “Or I’ll turn you into a piece of cheese.”

Terry Griggs’ novel, Invisible Ink, is the third book in the Cat’s Eye Corner series. This unusual series always involves some sort of magic in the schemes throughout this book.

Invisible Ink is primarily about how Olivier (the main character) sets off in a quest to find some missing wind powers for a girl named Linnet. Like in the other two books in this series, Olivier gets caught up in one adventure after another. The other characters in this book are always uncanny in some sort of way, but most of them still try to help Olivier. Another main character is a pen called Murray. Olivier keeps him in his front shirt pocket in all of his adventures. Murray and Olivier converse in a special notebook that they always keep handy.

I would rate this book with 3 out of 5 stars. This is because it is slow at times, but the rest of the time is non-stop action and adventure.
