The Adventures of Beekle: The Unimaginary Friend

Bestselling creator Dan Santat’s Caldecott Medal-winning The Adventure of Beekle: The Unimaginary Friend is an inventive and thoughtful celebration of companionship.

On an island far away, an imaginary friend is born. He patiently waits his turn to be chosen by a real child, but when he is overlooked time and again, he sets off on an incredible journey to the bustling city, where he finally meets his perfect match and–at long last–is given his special name: Beekle.

The #1 New York Times bestselling and award-winning author and illustrator Dan Santat–creator of After the Fall and Are We There Yet?–combines classic storytelling with breathtaking art in an unforgettable tale about friendship, imagination, and the courage to find one’s place in the world.
