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.
