Staff Review: The Adventures of Beekle: The Unimaginary Friend

"The Adventures of Beekle: The Unimaginary Friend" by Dan Santat

'The Adventures of Beekle: The Unimaginary Friend'  by  Dan Santat
★★★★★

On an island far away, imaginary friends are born. Beekle is one of them, waiting to be chosen by a child and transported to the real world. Rather than waiting, Beekle does the unimaginable and sets sail to the real world. He finds that the real world is strange and uncomfortable, until he meets his perfect friend. Then the world is colorful , fun, and not so strange. This is a fantastic book about finding your place in the big, bustling, sometimes unknown world. Dan Santat uses color to show the magic in the world and his creative imaginary creatures show the imagination of a true artist. This 2015 Caldecott winner has a beautiful story and illustrations, making it a can’t miss book.
