Shhhh! I have a secret book to share

For people who were thrilled by Hypercolour t-shirts and ‘mood’ rings in the eighties (that’s me), make sure you get your hot little hands (literally) on Keep Our Secrets.

Keep Our Secrets by Jordan Crane is a unique book. Each page is printed with a special heat-sensitive ink, allowing the reader to magically uncover ‘secrets’ when they expose parts of the illustration to heat (warm hands work although the publisher, McMullens, advises that Keep Our Secrets is best read with a hairdryer at hand!).

The story is about a brother and sister touring their house and discovering that things are not always what they seem – expect a dog asleep in a piano, a camera made of cheese and gloves that are actually bananas – there’s loads of secrets on every page.

The novelty of this book has obvious kid-appeal but add to that the fun illustrations and you’ll have kids wanting to uncover the secrets over and over again.

Keep Our Secrets is available from Book Depository for approximately $17. Book Depository deliver free of charge to Australia.
