The Lovereading4Kids comment

August 2017 Book of the Month Award-winning Rob Biddulph’s warm-hearted story is both a celebration of imaginary friends and a cautionary tale about how best to manage them. When things go wrong around Sid there is always someone else to blame – his imaginary friend Kevin. But then Sid becomes Kevin’s imaginary friend and he soon realises that friendship is better if everyone takes responsibility for their own actions. Rob Biddulph’s rhyming text strikes as sure note in a story about the delights of imagination and the importance of taking responsibility. ~ Julia Eccleshare

Synopsis

Kevin by Rob Biddulph

The glorious new picture book from the bestselling, award-winning author of Blown Away and GRRRRR!, all about one boy, one Kevin, and one very special friendship...Uh-oh - Sid Gibbons is in trouble again! Time to think fast...When Sid makes yet another mess, and his mum is at the end of her patience, Sid does what every quick-thinking kid would do - he blames it on his big, furry, vanilla-and-pink friend Kevin! And while it seemed like a good idea at the time, Sid gets an unexpected surprise when he finds out that Kevin and his world might not be so imaginary after all - and while his friend might be make-believe, his feelings are very real. A beautifully illustrated rhyming tale of friendship, kindness and stepping up, from a rare picture book talent. The perfect story for any child, from age three and up.
