School Library Journal - 10/01/2012 Gr 2–4—Readers who got to know Hank Wolowitz in Invisible Inkling (HarperCollins, 2011) will be glad to have him back. He is a typical fourth grader living in a cozy Brooklyn neighborhood: his parents run the local ice-cream shop; his teenage sister, Nadia, is kind of a pain; and an invisible bandapat named Inkling lives in his laundry basket. Halloween is fast approaching, and Hank longs to invent this year's special ice-cream flavor. Unfortunately, bandapats love squash, and Inkling just can't help but eat Nadia's carefully carved masterpieces before she can enter them in the Dangerous Pumpkins contest at school. Taking the blame time and time again for Inkling's high jinks, Hank finds himself in trouble and lonely, having offended all of his friends and family members. It looks as if he won't even have the chance to go trick-or-treating this year. In the end, he makes up with his loved ones and finally invents an ice-cream flavor-all thanks to Inkling. Occasional pencil drawings add extra details and personality to the story. Strong family dynamics, a lovable cast of characters, and an invisible bandapat who doesn't quit will have readers of short chapter books looking forward to the next title in this series.—Amanda Struckmeyer, Middleton Public Library, Madison, WI - Copyright 2012 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
