Author: Dan Santat

 

Pages: 32

Summary(from publisher): An imaginary friend waits for a long time to be imagined by a child and given a special name, and finally does the unimaginable – he sets out on a quest to find his perfect match in the real world.

Accompanying Discussion: Discuss the concept of imaginary friends. Discuss other books with the themes of imaginary friends (i.e. Emma Kate by Patricia Polacco, Jessica by Kevin Henkes, Where the Wild Things Are by Sendak, Louis by Ezra Jack Keats, Ted by DiTerlizzli).

Accompanying Activities: Draw Beekle, or another imaginary friend. Make a Beekle out of marshmallows!
