The Adventures of Beekle: The Unimaginary Friend (Dan Santat)

The Adventures of Beekle: The Unimaginary Friend
Dan Santat
Little, Brown Books
Fiction, YA Picture Book
****+ (Good/Great)

DESCRIPTION: After waiting and waiting for his human child to claim him from the island of imaginary friends, Beekle decides to take matters into his own hands. He sets sail for the real world. But finding his child isn't easy in such a strange place...

REVIEW: We had more down time at work, so I scrounged this one up while looking for something to read. A story about friendship, imagination, and courage, it features colorful artwork with some crazy creature designs; each imaginary friend is a unique creation. Beekle finds himself understandably confused by the real world, where only grown-ups get to eat cake and everyone needs naps. I gave it an extra half-star for overall imagination.
