The Kingsley Kids is a children’s book series by Kirsty Lee Hutton, with illustrations by Harry Bullard. Combining education, reading and fun, the Kingsley Kids series will be loved by young and old.

The Kingsley Kids are three best friends - Jaxon, Leo and Taylor from Kingsley Primary School in Australia. They are just ordinary kids who have managed to get themselves into some extraordinary situations.
The Invisible Spray is the first of three stories, where Jaxon discovers a magic spray that can make things invisible. The three children use the spray to teach the school bully a lesson about how to treat people, but the spray comes with its own problems and complications.
In The Tiny Babatool People, the Kingsley Kids are called upon to help relocate the nation of the Babatool Munkens; the secret, tiny people who live underground. Moving thousands of tiny creatures is more difficult than it sounds, and the children need to use all of their problem-solving skills to get the job done.
The Babatool Banquet story sees the children placed under a magical spell to visit the mysterious underground world where the tiny Munkens live. Their small friends introduce them to a world the children couldn’t even imagine; a world filled with strange sights, incredible magic and wonderful food.
