The Special Blanket, by Clayton Lehman

One Christmas Clayton got a blanket from his mom and dad. He realized it was magical. It turned into a castle with a crown — one for a king. Clayton wanted to be a king. He used his stuffed animals as knights. He pretended he had a queen. He had a ward after dinner. When he was done with his war he went to bed.

When he work up he saw that it was a normal blanket. He found it was his imagination. The next day he made a tent. He played with his dog Bella in the tent. Clayton ate lunch. He had a bologna sandwich, his favorite.
