The Adventures of Beekle: The Unimaginary Friend

Editor's Choice

Beekle is an imaginary friend waiting to be imagined. He lives on a island with all of the other imaginary friends to be. After waiting patiently for many nights, Beekle takes life head-on as he sets out to find his perfect match. Following his dream takes him on an adventure over the sea that is a somewhat scary and lonely, and then onto a big city where he is confused, until he spots other imaginaries who help him in his quest to find his perfect friend.

Worth reading for the gorgeous art alone, this award winning picture book will engage readers of all ages with a simple yet charming story of initiative, imagination and friendship.
