About the Author: Louise Arnold

Ever since I was a child, I’d dreamed of becoming an author It was the wish I would always make on the first star of the night, or when blowing out of the birthday cake candles I kept stacks of notebooks, filled to over flowing with poetry, stories, ideas and doodles, hoping that one day they would make it into print The first book published, The Invisible Friend, is actually loosely based on a.

    Eh. It had its moments. And it had lots of weaknesses. The following quotation is representative of the book as a whole:

    Mum... desperately looked like she wanted to spit on a tissue and clean Tom to within an inch of his life.

    Erm. Nice insight but: should be looked desperately, and to within is very awkward and an inch of his life is inappropriate when Mum is expressing love and concern, and is a cliche to boot.

    Also, I got peeved when we're informed that we learn about stalactites from geographers, rather than from geologists. And I'm tired of bad guys and bullies that are so unremittingly, boringly, just plain bad.

    Otoh, I do like the idea that the ghostly world is spread upon the Real world like butter on toast, and that cats can move between the two. And Tom's feelings as he copes with these adventures feel authentic and make me enjoy getting to know him. And I want a proper British 'cheese and onion' sandwich.

    I might just read the next in the series, because there is potential here, and since Arnold's debut got sold, maybe she could afford (or be assigned?) a professional editor for her second(? I don't know how publishing works, ok.)

    Tom Golden, a lonely boy who is bullied and labeled a freak by Big Ben mutters to himself, Life isn't fair at the exact moment that Grey Arthur a timid, lonely ghost distraught over never fitting in says the exact same words to himself. The human and ghostly worlds collide at that moment and Golden & Grey can see each other and they become friends. Arthur takes on the role of Tom's invisible friend and tries (as hard as he can) to make Tom's life more bearable.

    As time goes on, Tom's friendship with Arthur causes some oddities at home and school. He appears to be talking to himself (when he is really talking to Arthur), cries a lot, and brings Tom's parents to call in a renowned child psychologist, Dr. Brown to help him. Dr. Brown is fascinated with Tom's insistence that he can see and talk to ghosts. He asks Tom to have Arthur prove that he is 'real'. What Tom and Arthur don't know, though, is that Dr. Brown is a fraud and only wants Arthur to perform illegal activities that will make him rich.

    When Dr. Brown kidnaps Tom to force Arthur to aid him in his dastardly deed, all manners of ghosts from poltergeists to faintly reals and sadness summoners to chain rattlers come to help rescue Tom and in turn, Arthur. Golden & Grey is a slightly scary, but mostly heartwarming story of ghosts and humans and the friendship between one lonely little boy and one disillusioned ghost. An adorable ghost story that isn't too scary for the younger set.

    Cute, silly ghost story for kids. It has very little substance (I can't be bothered to read the next one in the trilogy), some gross-out jokes, kidnapping, a wide variety of silly ghosts, a not-very-attractive human protagonist and a slightly more attractive ghost protagonist. It's kind of like one of the early Harry Potter books crossed with Adrian Mole or Diary of a Wimpy Kid, but much lower quality than any of those. There were points at which I really enjoyed it, and others where I could hardly imagine why I should keep reading it. That's not to say it's actually a bad book, but in a world where we have lots of really enjoyable hefty books full of ghosts, potty humor, and loser kids, it's not very worthwhile.

    Ghosts are NOT nor have they ever been humans. At least, according to Grey Arthur, the ghost who befriends the recently-moved-with-no-friends, Tom Golden. Humans can no longer see ghosts, so it makes all of their jobs harder. In fact, Arthur has tried all sorts of ghost callings: Sadness summoner, Poltergeist, Faintly Real, etc. He has failed miserably at them all, until he stumbled upon his true calling: Invisible Friend to Tom Golden! Arthur remains invisible until something happens to make Tom able to see ALL ghosts. Now attention-starved ghosts everywhere (and the villian who would use Tom's unique ability)come calling. Great new series from Great Britain.

    This book was something I just stumbled upon, it was actually given to my little brother. He read it first but then I read it and it was great. It's a funny, remarkable book because of its story, a boy that gets a guardian ghost, which he can't see, but then gets hit by a car and can. Fantastic!

  6. Christina Reid says:

    Picked this up on the recommendation of a pupil in my class who read it and loved it! The Ghost World is spread over the real world, like butter over toast, but humans can't usually see Ghost's because they have decided that they don't exist. A creative and fun story, perfect for aged 8 and upwards. My only reservation was that the bullying is awful, unchallenged and quite serious - would like to think, as a teacher, that there's no way that this could happen in a school today!
    3.5 stars.

    3.5 stars

    My problem was how unrealistic and unfair the way bullying and adults were handled, I think it’d leave a bad impression on kids.
    Other than that it was a fun, unique concept and a fun story.

  8. Emily says:

    usually not a fan of ghost books but this was not a horror book. it was actually quite good.

  9. Poppy says:
