My Review
Invisible Us is a cute children's picture book that follows Gecko as he searches for some friends who are like him. Which other invisible creatures might he find on his adventures, and will they want to be his friend? You'll have to read it and find out.
My son, who is four, enjoyed reading this book with me. He actually kept going back to the book after we finished so he could work on learning to read it himself. He also really liked looking at the colorful illustrations and learning which animals were hiding within the pages.

I would definitely recommend Invisible Us to young readers, parents who enjoy reading books to their kiddos, and anyone who enjoys being a kid at heart and reading stories about animals and their adventures.
5 stars!

Dougie Arnold’s decision, as a young teacher, to move to Kenya was to change his life.  Teaching in four different international schools, the last of which he set up from scratch for the then leader of the Kenyan opposition, Ken Matiba, he fell in love with the country.  Some years later, the President’s family, the Kenyattas, asked him to be head of their prep school but his father’s cancer prevented a return to Africa. 

Half way through his fifteen years in Kenya he took two years out of the classroom and helped to run and market a game reserve on the edge of the Rift Valley, broadcasting some of his exploits on BBC radio and qualifying as a pilot.  Wildlife and its protection became a passion. 

Returning to the UK he spent eighteen years as deputy head of a leading London prep school but took early retirement in order to write. The influence of Africa is core to his work.  An illustrated children’s book, Invisible Us, is due out in September and Tusker, a novel on elephant poaching, at the end of the year.
