In Invisible Inkling, The Whoopie Pie War, Hank, the main character, is a fairly normal kid with a really wild imagination. His parents own an ice cream shop. Inkling is Hank’s invisible friend that I like to imagine as a talking cat with a lot of weird ideas. Betty-Ann is a mean old lady that sells whoopee pies. Frank’s dad seems to have some obsessions, like trying to make pumpkin ice cream and his mom likes to increase business and sell ice cream to restaurants for dessert.
The story begins when a food truck that sells whoopie pies, operated by Betty-Ann parks in front of his parent’s ice cream shop and starts stealing business. To make matters worse, Betty-Ann beat’s Frank’s father to the punch with a new flavor. The rest of the story is about Frank and his family trying to get her to move her truck away so she’ll stop taking their business. Frank and Inkling try to doing things like spying and conducting scare tactics to help. The story builds up to a great ending.
I thought the author did a good job of describing the character’s feelings and emotions, you can relate to them. Inkling is particularly fantastic and interesting, his background is a bit odd and he has a lot of talent. You both admire and like him.
I rate this book 4 out of 5 because Inkling is so interesting. The book is short and funny and perfect for when you don't feel like reading a long hard book. The author could have talked more about other things that Hank did like school and swimming lessons. It is best for ages 6-10.
