    Invisible Jerry is a children's picture book written by Adam Wallace and illustrated by Giuseppe Poli which stars a shy boy named Jerry who is considered invisible to everyone around him except when a little girl named Molly who changes his life irrevocablyWallace's text is rather simplistic and straightforward It stars a little boy who is shy and uiet and is overlooked by everyone It is an eye opener that calls attention to shy or self conscious children even uiet ones that become forgotten They remain unseen and unheard for various reasons connected to their character or lack of visible attraction Poli's illustrations have perfectly captured Jerry's isolation as he is the only one shown in color and all the other characters are presented as animated and in grey tones These depictions of Jerry's invisibility continue until he meets MollyThe premise of the book is rather straightforward Nobody notices Jerry – he is overlooked until one day he meets a girl named Molly She shows an interest in Jerry in what he is thinking and saying She shares things with him She made him feel like a real person and as this feeling has a flow on effect in Jerry He learns to recognize this invisibility in others and sets out to repair that unseen state thanks to his friend MollyAll in all Invisible Jerry is a wonderful and moving children's book about having value as a person being paid attention and listened to and about the human need to share thoughts and feelings with others

    This is Jerry's story at least it begins with Jerry Jerry who no one seems to notice The boy who is never last picked for a team because he isn't picked at all The boy people crashed into but never said sorry to Jerry This is the story of a boy that is invisible to those around himWhat I like about this book is that it isn't just about Jerry You see while no one notices Jerry at first eventually Molly does Suddenly Jerry is brought to life and experiences that missing piece of what he needs to grow and develop into a healthy adult This story just doesn't stop there because and I really can't word it any better because the author nailed it Jerry sums it up in the middle of the book when he saysNot everybody could have a Molly But maybe someone could have a JerryRead the full review at Miss Jenny's Classroom

    Fantastic story about how people can be lonely in a crowd and the little that it can take to make them feel good 'Take the time to see the people around you' is what I got from this story

    People don’t notice Jerry If someone bumps into him they don’t say sorry If someone waves it’s to somebody behind him If he makes a joke nobody laughs He never gets picked last for sports teams because he’s never picked at all It’s like he’s invisible Until Molly comes alongMolly asks Jerry his opinion She shares things with him She laughs with him She sees him And it is then that Jerry realises he can pass on Molly’s giftAuthor Adam Wallace was inspired to write Invisible Jerry after hearing children talk about never being passed the ball during games or never being spoken to at parties In today’s busy world there are a lot of people who feel like they’re on the outside looking in This book helps bridge the gap Wallace says the book is also for himself – the shy kid who never felt brave enough to step forward but who was lucky to have people who lit him up and made him realise he had plenty to offerIt’s full of heart and humour and has a wonderful message It will make those that read pause and reflect on their behaviours Everybody will identify with the characters – whether you’re a Jerry a Molly or one of those that simply don’t see them It will resonate with everyone to some degree But rather than wallow in self pity Wallace ensures readers can find a way to help others and themselves Illustrator Giuseppe Poli makes wonderful use of space and colour to really portray the story in pictures The book opens to a uniue double spread almost completely in black and white It inverts the story and gives a wonderful hint at what the book hides withinAny book that helps children with transitions in life – think starting school moving house getting a new sibling – is a welcome addition Invisible Jerry covers a topic not often seen in children’s books Previous books on the topic have tended to focus on embracing your uniueness While that is no doubt an important message it’s nice to see a picture book about helping others Jerry learns that people will see his talents and how worthy he is by having someone else take that first step with himThe book drove some interesting conversations within our home Children are naturally egotistical at a young age Invisible Jerry helped inspire some wider thinking beyond their own selves Teacher notes are also available for those that use it in their classroomInvisible Jerry is a simple yet incredibly deep and thought provoking story for younger readers Aimed at early primary students especially it has a message that will resonate regardless of your age
