The Adventures of Beekle the Unimaginary Friend

29 Dec


The Adventures of Beekle the Unimaginary Friend written and illustrated by Dan Santat (2014)

Beekle waited and waited for his friend to imagine him. One day he takes it upon himself to journey into the real world far away. It was a strange place, but he finally found his way to a familiar place. Just as he was about to give up, he heard a voice calling him. Her name was Alice, his was Beekle, and they were perfect for each other. ‘Together they did the unimaginable.’

Dan Santat has created the most lovable imaginary friend ever! Beekle tugs at your heartstrings as he does the unimaginable… he goes out in search of his real friend. In a world that can be scary at times, Beekle finds the one friend who is perfect. She is the one who was waiting for him all along, the one who needs him as much as he needs her.

I love this concept. It’s a boy meets girl set-up on the imaginary friend level.

    Oh, Juliana, this book is brilliant! And if you haven’t heard Dan Santat’s interview on Matthew Winner’s “Let’s Get Busy” podcast, you must! He talks about Beekle and you will appreciate the book tenfold!
