I is for Invisible – Picture Books from A to Z



Hi Adana here,

Can you see me? Or am I perhaps INVISIBLE? Which just happens to be the title of the picture book I’m introducing today.



I’m going to let the author Rachael J. Parkin tell us a little about her book:

I’m Rachael, a 30-something mum, author and data analyst from Pontefract in West Yorkshire, England. As I sit here writing this I am comfy in my pjs and dressing gown, thinking that a nap may be a good idea this afternoon!

I have suffered with a number of invisible illnesses throughout my life and in the last 4 years have had more operations and diagnostic procedures than I care to remember. I am thankful to have a family who have always been supportive but it is very difficult to explain exactly how I feel, especially to my children. I decided to use my passion and talent for writing and drawing to try and bridge the gap.

This is my first book about invisible illness, although I envisage more along the way. I already have two children’s books published on Amazon and this will be my 3rd!

  1. Invisibility is a superpower that I’d like to have. Being metaphorically or socially invisible would be a bad thing. As I grow older I find myself seemingly invisible on occasion.

    • It’s a two way thing I think. Sometimes I’m invisible and I HATE it, like when I’m trying to get served at a bar. At the other times I want nothing more than to be invisible, to be able to slink back into my cave much like little Adana does and forget about the world outside.

  2. Hello fellow A-to-Zer! My sister has an invisible illness–chronic/systemic Lyme Disease– and frequently wishes that she actually looked, you know, sick. It would be a big help, she thinks, in her interactions with the world. It kind of makes me think of Victorian mourning attire. Everyone knew that the woman in dead black had just lost some close relative, and would therefore not expect her to be cheerful.

    • Yes, I’m a cancer survivor and when I was going through chemo and truly felt awful I’d often get “you don’t look sick” comments. Totally get it and I wish your sister all the best.
