Imaginary Fred (HB)
This is an extraordinary collaboration between Irish Children's Laureate, Eoin Colfer, and picture book superstar, Oliver Jeffers! 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 a lonely little boy wished for him and found a friendship like no other. The perfect chemistry between Eoin Colfer's text and Oliver Jeffer's artwork make for an original colour gift book.
Winner of Specsavers Irish Children's Book of the Year: Junior 2015.
"The first collaboration from two children's books superstars (it also marks Colfer's picture book debut) is a quirky and comical delight, bursting with warmth and wit. Looks like a gorgeous package too." Bookseller "Jeffers's spidery vignettes are perfectly synced to Colfer's bubbly, confiding narrative." Publishers Weekly [USA]
