This is my favourite among the wonderful works of John Wyndham. It's the story of a little boy with an invisible friend 'Chocky'. All pretty normal until Chocky starts asking questions about life on planet earth.
John Wyndham writes science fiction in a totally believable way. It reads like non fiction as the protagonist observes his son, at first with wry humour then with growing unease. More than half a century later it's still utterly fascinating. If overpriced.
