The Rosemary Wells books do not generally do it for me. This one however was rather charming: The littlest of four kids is told he's "too little" for all of their (cooler) toys, so he finds a "disappearing bag" -- i.e., a cloak of invisibility. After demonstrating it to his siblings, they all think it's the coolest thing, and disappear for hours on end -- while he happily plays with their now-abandoned toys. Works on multiple levels, for adult and child readers alike. ( )

When Morris finds a disappearing bag on Christmas day, he jumps right in and becomes invisible! Now he has something everyone wants to try, but they have to find him first.

My inner child did not want to come out to play for this one. I agree with Meg's review: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/1147470477?book_show_action=true&page=... ( )

This was a very cute little book. The story is about a young mouse who got a bear for Christmas. His brother got a hockey outfit, his sister Rose got a beauty kit, and his other sister Betty got a chemistry set for Christmas. His brother and his two sisters always gave excuses to why he couldn't play with their stuff. Then, the young mouse spotted an unopened present under the tree. In it was a disappearing bag. Young mouse was really starting to enjoy his gift when his siblings wanted to use it too. So, he put them all in the bag and he began to zoom, mix, and beautify until it was time for bed! ( )
