This book is refreshing with a very interesting and intriguing premise. There is a world of imaginary friends who are just waiting for their human friends to imagine them. Even I, when reading the book, was captivated by this storyline.
This book won this year’s Caldecott Medal award and the fun, colourful pictures (and oh so cute Beekle) will appeal to everyone. Beekle is just waiting… and waiting… and waiting for a friend to dream of him… alas, no one chooses him. But never mind, he is not discouraged. He decides to take matters into his own hands and goes in search of his friend.
Children will adore Beekle…the cute fluffy fellow. I appreciate the book’s subtle message too – pursue what you want and believe in, be brave and don’t give up. 🙂
Two thumbs up Mr Marshmallow man! 🙂
