Product description


USA Today, August 22, 2013:
"Illustrator Barton adds a wonderful touch by drawing all the other characters in color but sketching Brian in faint shades of black and white - at least at first....Before long, Brian, in living color, is not so invisible after all. It's a lovely lesson in the simple acts of friendship, especially recommended for the most popular kids in class."

Scholastic Instructor, Fall 2013:
"Pitch-perfect words and art."

Starred Review, School Library Journal, September 2013:

"This is a simple yet heartfelt story about a boy who has been excluded for no apparent reason but finds a way to cope and eventually gains acceptance.”

Kirkus Reviews, September 15, 2013:
"Tender illustrations rendered in glowing hues capture Brian’s isolation deftly...Use this to start a discussion: The author includes suggested questions and recommended reading lists for adults and children. Accessible, reassuring and hopeful."

Publishers Weekly, August 26, 2013:
"Ludwig and Barton understand classroom dynamics...They portray Brian’s situation as a matter of groupthink that can be rebooted through small steps. It’s a smart strategy, one that can be leveraged through the book’s excellent discussion guide."

"Trudy Ludwig has given us the gift of another empathic, poignant book for children that addresses the complex topic of peer relationships...A must-read."
- Carrie Goldman

4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome book 👍
By Reading_Tam_Ishly on 28 February 2020
It's one of the best children's books ever! Even I as an adult can totally relate with the main character. Brian feels isolated, lonely and feels invisible in class. He's a loner who enjoys what he does: good at drawing and having lots of stories in his head. He really struggles when it comes to team work and really cannot get along with the rest of the kids. The other kids are just outspoken and do not hesitate to make fun of him or the new kid. This new kid accepts Brian as he is and Brian has to change his perspectives on how to be with others. To be a friend, he has to be a friend and actually make an effort to participate in team activities. The story seems so real. The illustration is subtle yet amazing. But the story ended too soon.
