Longlisted for the UKLA 2017 Book Award and One of our Books of the Year 2015 -Julia Eccleshare's Pick of the Year 2015 There are so many adjectives you could use to describe this book - extraordinary, dazzling, original, funny, irresistible, quirky, imaginative, clever, stunning - but none go far enough. A truly unique work of art, it combines the talents of two superstars of the children's book world into something so simple yet so clever. It is a must for every family to share and will bring a positive glow to each and every reader and listener for no sooner than it pulls at the heart strings it will have you chuckling out loud too. A truly special picture book and a classic in the making. ~ Julia Eccleshare

Imaginary Fred by Eoin Colfer
