People don't notice Jerry. If someone bumps into him, they don't say sorry. If someone waves, it's to somebody behind him. He never gets picked last for sports teams, but that's because he never gets picked at all. It's like he's invisible. That is, until Molly comes along. Molly asks Jerry his opinion. She shares things with him, she laughs with him and she sees him. Jerry soon realizes he can pay her gift forward, as there are plenty of other kids who feel invisible too. In today's busy world, there are lots of people who feel like they're on the outside looking in. This picture book is written for them, to show them that there are people out there who will see them, who will recognize their talents, and see how worthy they are. Bestselling author Adam Wallace (How to Catch an Elf) was inspired to write Invisible Jerry based on his own experiences as a shy kid growing up. This story comes straight from the heart.
Adam Wallace is a New York Times bestselling author, who has had one of his books be a question on Jeopardy, and has also had one of his books read at the White House! Adam enjoys writing more than anything, but he likes drawing too, and doesn't mind long walks on the beach at sunset. Adam's previous books include How to Catch a Leprechaun and How to Catch an Elf (both New York Times bestsellers), How to Catch the Easter Bunny (read at the 2017 White House Easter Egg Roll), The Vanilla Slice Kid and SPARK.
Giuseppe Poli loved making drawings, stories and games as a kid. He grew up and went on a long, wandering adventure into computer graphics, games, feature film visual effects and IT, and then realized that he missed making his own stories. And that's when he stumbled into the world of children's picture books. Now not-so-young Giuseppe is back doing what he loves best: making drawings and stories, and hopefully delighting people for many more years to come. He is the illustrator of five previous picture books: Hootie the Cutie, Fearless with Dad, Oliver's Grumbles, The Wheelchair Adventure and Baby Band.
