Book Review/Giveaway: The Invisible Blanket. Ends Sept 2nd


The Invisible Blanket

The Invisible Blanket by Saragine Francois

About the Book: It was supposed to be an ordinary camping trip with their families. But after fishing with their dads, Dylan and Charlie went exploring in the forest and discovered a treasure map!

Join the boys on their fun-filled adventure with The Invisible Blanket!

My Review: The invisible blanket is an interesting story with an important lesson about being dishonest. When Dylan and Charlie discover a treasure map, and decided to find the buried treasure. Inside the treasure box laid a blanket that makes someone invisible.

They decided to keep it a secret from their friends and family. With all the excitement they forgot to read the warning on the treasure box: ‘Beware! He who uses this blanket in a dishonest way will become invisible!’ They couldn’t wait to play cruel tricks on their friends, steal from a candy store and listen to private conversations without knowing the repercussions. For months they kept up with their cruel tricks until their body started becoming translucent. Will Dylan and Charlie be invisible forever? Or will they learn to be honest before it’s too late?

This is the type of story that will be appealing to children. I highly recommend this book.

  1. The Invisible Blanket by Saragine Francois, sounds like a fun read that my granddaughter would enjoy, I like that it talks about what happens when you do something that you have been warned not to do and I think that it would benefit my granddaughter who at times has a mind of her own in making correct and honest decisions in life. We would love to follow Dylan and Charlie’s adventure on the camping trip.

  3. Another interesting story that also teaches a lesson while the children are reading. A couple of my grandkids are of the age this is geared for. Thanks again for your generosity and giving us a chance to win.

  4. I love finding books that help teach a moral and how to live. As my Goddaughter continues to expand her reading, this would be a great way to help teach honesty. Thanks for sharing.

  7. The Invisible Blanket would appeal to my grandkids who love the outdoors but also would teach them a lesson about respecting others property & privacy.

  9. I’m always looking for books for my daughter that teach moral lessons and this book about honesty fits the bill! Many people probably wonder about what it would be like to be invisible and this is a great way to have a discussion with my daughter about how to use our “power” for good or for evil.
