by Eoin Colfer, Oliver Jeffers
Did you know that if the conditions are just right, and if you add a little electricity, or magic, or luck, that an imaginary friend might appear just when you need one? An imaginary friend like Fred.
Fred is the best imaginary friend you could ever hope for, but no matter how hard he tries, the same thing always happens: his friend finds a friend in the real world, and Fred fades away, bit by bit, waiting to be wished for again...
Then one day, a boy named Sam wishes for a friend, and Fred appears! For a while everything is perfect.
But what about the day when Sam finds a real friend?
Could it be that this time, something magical might happen...?
Imaginary Fred is a quirky, funny, utterly irresistible story from two of the finest picture book creators on the planet.
Eoin Colfer is the internationally bestselling author of the Artemis Fowl series, as well as several standalone novels, including the highly acclaimed Airman. His newest series is W.A.R.P. Eoin was born and raised in Ireland, where he was appointed Children's Laureate. Eoin has two imaginary friends who are hilarious because they insist they are his actual sons and need stuff like food and clothing.
Oliver Jeffers makes art and tells stories. From his much-loved debut, How to Catch a Star, Oliver has gone on to create a collection of award-winning and bestselling picture books (including the illustrations for The Day the Crayons Quit, written by Drew Daywalt), which have been translated into many languages all over the world. Originally from Northern Ireland, Oliver now lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. Oliver used to have an imaginary friend called Egbert. But Egbert stole his bicycle and was last seen pedaling west as hard as he could. That was seventeen years ago.
