SARAH & KATY AND THE BOOK OF BLANK
The companion novel to SARAH & KATY AND THE IMAGINATION BLANKETS
When sisters Sarah and Katy discover an unread book on the shelf, they’re surprised to find it has no title and blank pages. The only writing is a warning on the first page:
Do not proceed with this book
unless you plan to complete it from beginning to end.
The story does not end until you reach the last page.
Once they turn the page, there’s no turning back.
Join Sarah and Katy on their second adventure, where imagination is their only hope to escape the Book of Blank — and also the very thing that endangers them of being trapped between the book covers forever.
Julie Stroebel Barichello’s debut children’s chapter book
SARAH & KATY AND THE IMAGINATION BLANKETS
Sarah and Katy open a Christmas gift from their aunt to find … blankets.
Plain, boring old blankets.
Except these aren’t just any blankets — they are imagination blankets, capable of transporting the sisters to any place their imaginations can think of and transforming them into anyone they desire to be. From magic carpet rides to adventures on the high seas, from hot air balloon safaris to kingdoms of their own creation, Sarah and Katy let their imaginations run away with them.
Beware the overactive imagination, though. Sometimes, it can lead to trouble.
