Ages 4 and up
From the internationally bestselling author Eoin Colfer and the New York Times Bestselling illustrator of The Day the Crayons Quit comes a quirky, funny, and utterly irresistible story.
Did you know that sometimes, with a little electricity, or luck, or even magic, an imaginary friend might appear when you need one? An imaginary friend like Fred. Fred floated like a feather in the wind until Sam, a lonely little boy, wished for him and, together, they found a friendship like no other.
The perfect chemistry between Eoin Colfer's text and Oliver Jeffers's artwork makes for a dazzlingly original picture book.
This is such a sweet, unexpected story of what it feels like to be an imaginary friend. The idea that a person (real or imaginary) needs friendship and is more complete and understood when they find it is such a touching message. I think it speaks to being kind to everyone and never knowing when or where you’ll find your newest friend. The quality is beautiful and the story is so unique. -Hayley, mother to Jack (age 4) Boston, MA
