What do you do if your mother’s putting on makeup, your father’s shaving, your grandmother is caught up in her television programme, and nobody will pay attention when you’re frightened that the rain will get angry if you don’t let it in? And what do you do when they insist you turn out the light when you go to bed? Don’t they know how scary it can be in the dark? Katerina ’s solution is to invent an imaginary friend, the Invisible One. He’s a grouchy sort of fellow who’s full of complaints and contrariness each time he appears, but who brightens up when they have adventures. Maro Loizou’s four little stories for children aged five and over, now collected and reissued in one volume, use the bracing power of the imagination to dispel the boredom and fears that beset an only child with a loving but busy family.
