The adventures of Beekle : The unimaginary friend

By Dan Santat

ISBN 9780316199988

This is a delightful picture book with real feeling. Warm tingly good feelings! Sometimes in life you have to work at finding friends. And sometimes a very special friend just happens to find their way to you and that is just what happens with Beekle. Absolutely a must-have in your school library. I love the use of colour to reflect the moods. Greys of loneliness and bright colours of friendship and happiness. A great book to encourage children to take risks and go out and try something different.

“This magical story begins on an island far away where an imaginary friend is born. He patiently waits his turn to be chosen by a real child, but when he is overlooked time and again, he sets off on an incredible journey to the bustling city, where he finally meets his perfect match and-at long last-is given his special name: Beekle.”
