The Adventures of Beekle: The Unimaginary Friend by Dan Santat

The Adventures of Beekle takes us into the magical, mysterious world of imaginary friends...from the imaginary friends point of view!

Beekle is an imaginary friend waiting to happen.
He watches all his friends get picked by children in need of an imaginary friend...but nobody picks Beekle.

Tired of passively waiting, Beekle decides to be daring and brave and seek a life of adventure!
He heads off into the unknown - in search of his own friend.

Beekle's story follows one of the most common picture book themes for young children - belonging and identity.

Beekle stays true to himself. He is persistent and patient. He actively seeks what he wants, but he doesn't force it.

Naturally, all these positive attitudes and behaviours are rewarded when Beekle finally finds the perfect friend for him.

Beekle is an inspiring and heart-warming to share with 4+ children
