Matthew, they thought, was just going through a phase of talking to himself. And, like many parents, they waited for him to get over it, but it started to get worse. Mathew's conversations with himself grew more and more intense - it was like listening to one end of a telephone conversation while someone argued, cajoled and reasoned with another person you couldn't hear. Then Matthew started doing things he couldn't do before, like counting in binary-code mathematics. So he told them about Chocky - the person who lived in his head.

Wyndham. What a visionary. And this is a wonderful story, in part mystery, in part psychological thriller, in part family story, in part sci-fi, and in all ways, utterly hopeful, well, almost utterly. And did I mention timely? Given the threat we pose to the planet, this book remains pertinent.

You have a 12 year old son. Everything about him is normal. But one day he starts talking to someone you can't see and starts drawing strange things so complicated you can't understand it. It's a bitter sweet, creepy good, and crazy kind of story. I hope you read it.

Loved this book - so clever and exciting to read when you are a child and have never thought about the possibility of alien visitations before.
