The third book in the Children of the Red King series, CHARLIE BONE AND THE INVISIBLE BOY offers more magical fantasy that is fast paced and easy to read.

This semester at Bloor's Academy brings a few changes. There is a new art teacher, Mr. Boldova, and a new student named Belle, who lives with the Yewbeam aunts and seems to have strange power over them. Emma and Charlie soon discover Mr. Boldova's secret identity: He is the older brother of Ollie Sparks, the boy who lives in the attic of Bloor's Academy. Ollie had always been prying into matters that didn't concern him, so Ezekiel Bloor had made him invisible. When Charlie and his friends find him, Ollie is alone and hungry, so they promise to help him become visible again.

There is so much going on in this book, all at once. The invisible boy. Uncle Paton's trip. Skarpo the sorcerer. Charlie's grandmother and great aunts. Belle who is actually someone else. Honestly, I think the author had Grandma Maisie and Charlie's friend Benjamin go on trips just so she'd have fewer characters to deal with.

The writing does seem to be improving, but the plotting is still rather weak, and the dialog is sometimes not really believable. As a whole, the book has a somewhat childish feel.
