Specially for Lukas, who wanted to know what the book looks like without the slipcover.

Meanwhile the official Joshua Files Website is now up and running! It’s got a sample chapter and cool desktop wallpapers to download.
My little 6-year old has been talking the book up in her primary school, bless her. And yesterday I told her to go choose a new book to read from her bookshelf, but instead she went and found my one copy of ‘Invisible City’ and presented it to me very shyly. “Are you sure?” I said. “It’s a bit grown-up for you.”
But she was adamant. So I started reading it to her. It’s going to take a while because I have to explain things as we go. But if our neighbour can read ‘Northern Lights’ to her four-year old, then dammit, I’ll really try to help my little daughter to enjoy ‘Invisible City’.
