Small Fry Pick of the Week: Imaginary Fred

Cover image for Imaginary Fred

Imaginary Fred: by Eion Colfer

Ages 4-8

Did you know that if you 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, but by bit, waiting to be wished for again . . .

Then 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 it be that this time, something magical might happen?
