    One thought on “Keep Our Secrets”

    1. this is an excellent book that combines humor, melancholy and alien technology all in one tidy mcsweeney's package. it's about the size of a book of postcards, and would make a great holiday gift, says me the gimmickry first. the back of the book claims "each drawing has hidden images beneath, visible only when the reader rubs the page to warm the ink." the reality is that you have to have fingertips made of the sun to make that work. hope you like friction!this book is shelved in the children's [...]

    2. This book definitely has the "neato" factor, esp for kids, with its invisible ink. A good part of the book will only become visible if you apply some heat to the invisible ink (with a hairdryer, though you can also try rubbing the hidden images with your hand if you are trying to develop strong biceps and don't mind friction burns on your fingers). Though the writing is kind of clever in its own way, there is not much plot here so it's best for kids who are young enough to be amused by this neat [...]

    3. This doesn't seem like a book for kids. The pictures, when revealed, seem pointless and not kid- appropriate or appealing. Disappointing. More gimmick than substance. Besides, who wants to drag out a hair dryer to read a book?

    4. Cool - I always love Jordan Crane's mix of innocent and creepy with that unintentional vibe. He really captures a sense of how as a kid you can accept some pretty wild stuff and either get totally freaked out by it or just roll with it, whichever the situation dictates. Completely the latter in this lighthearted book, maybe less so in some of his other stuff.In any event, the heat-sensitive ink was also a neat idea, though I don't know how often I'll pull out the hair dryer to read this.

    5. If you are the type of person who "likes children," you should buy this book for one of the "children" you like. "They" will definitely like the book (and might even like you back).If, on the other hand, you are the type of person who "doesn't like children." That simply means that you won't have any "grubby little fingerprints" on your "cool new book." People, it's a win-win situation and anyone with this book is a "winner."

    6. Absolutely great book for kids--they'll love seeing the secrets appear from behind the black ink. (Don't worry, the black areas turn black again after they've cooled.) On Christmas, I gave this book to my 11-year-old niece with cerebral palsy--she read it dozens of times that night and for days afterward. (She can't handle the recommended hair dryer to heat the pages, but she can hold a microwaveable heating pad to hold to the pages.) That's one kid who thinks it's fantastic.

    7. Ok. I have been waiting for this for months, and it finally came. The concept is so fun, but it does not work very well. I have kept my warm hands on it, rubbed it, and just get a ghost of the image I should see. Just read the label on the front. "For Best Results, Read This Book With A Hairdryer". Who wants to read a book with a hairdryer?!!?Lame.

    8. Coolest idea for a picture book EVER! The black ink is heat sensitive and when you rub it (or go over it quickly with a hair dryer) it becomes transparent, revealing all sorts of fun, silly secrets! A brilliant idea, wonderfully executed by Mr. Crane.

    9. This book was awesome. My boys loved reading all the secrets. A must have for your children (or the child in you!)
