IMAGINARY FREDEOIN COLFER & OLIVER JEFFERS Book Number: 83106 Product format: Hardback
By the bestselling author of the Artemis Fowl series and an award-winning picture book illustrator, this is a winning combination. 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 real friend in the real world, and Fred fades away, bit by bit, waiting to be wished for again. The one day a boy called 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 this be the time when something magical might happen? 'But then something interesting happened. The older they grew, the less time the four friends spent together. Sam and Sammi it seemed preferred graphic novels to music, and they left the quartet to concentrate on their comic book series. Carnegie Hall was eventually played. Not as a quartet, however, but as a duo. Again, much to the confusion of the audience.' An utterly irresistible funny and quirky book about friendship and human interaction. Big pages, colour.
