Caretaker’s daughter Fili is sad to see her city neighbours hustle in and out, too busy to talk. But will feeling sad help or is it a bit more imagination needed? Fili gets to work creating a mysterious something that just might build little bridges between them all.


This book The Invention, has the most fabulous illustrations I have ever seen!

A caretakers daughter Fili is making an invention of her own, but doesn’t know what it will do, or how it will work. I absolutely love the idea that Fili sends everyone an invitation to come to her invention party.

About author Julia Hubery

Julia Hubery was born in Stamford and trained as an architect. She loves the countryside and nature, finding it a pool of inspiration to draw on in her writing.

About illustrator James Munro

James Munro has been drawing since he could grasp a pencil. Since then, everything in his path has fallen prey to his doodles, from books and magazines to films and animations. He lives and works in a pile of pencil shavings and spilled ink in Liverpool. James’ ambition is to one day have a shed like Fili’s father.
