"Chantelle doesn't want to be a big sister when Mum's new baby is born. All she wants is a cloak… so she can make herself invisible."

Suitable for children beginning early chapter books

This story took many drafts to shine through. I wanted a special cloak to be the story, but then coping with a new baby in the family became part of the story also.  How to meld both together was a challenge.  The idea for this story came from a little girl who showed us the cloak her father had made her- amazing.  The idea took hold and grew!
