"Did you know that if the conditions are just right, and if you add a little electricity, or magic, or luck, that an imaginary friend might appear just when you need one? An imaginary friend like Fred. Fred is the best imaginary friend you could ever hope for, but no matter how hard he tries, the same thing always happens: his friend finds a friend in the real world, and Fred fades away, bit by bit, waiting to be wished for again... Then one day, a boy named Sam wishes for a friend, and Fred appears! For a while everything is perfect. But what about the day when Sam finds a real friend? Could it be that this time, something magical might happen...?"--… (mer)

This is a lovely story, but way way way way too long. I think it would have been better as a short chapter book. ( )

LOVE this heartfelt story about having an imaginary friend! ( )

Sam was lonely and longed for a friend. Only under the perfect circumstances does an imaginary come along, and when it does, it is special indeed, and that was imaginary Fred. Fred had had real friends before, but only until they had found another real friend, then Fred would fade and wait for another. Sam and Fred did everything together-- they were inseparable, until one day, Sam met Sammi and Fred was sure he would start to fade again. Fred was so sad; he had never had such a good real friend as Sam, but he knew this is how things went. Then he discovered Sammi also had an imaginary friend named Frieda and they (all 4 of them) did everything together. The story has a unique and happy ending.
This was my granddaughter's favorite book last year, and we reread it many times. We like the way it looks, the illustrations, as well as the story. Very cute. ( )

What happens to imaginary friends when kids don’t need them anymore? Like Drew Daywalt, Eoin Colfer looks at a conundrum from an “out of the box” point of view, i.e., in this case, from the point of view of an imaginary friend named Fred.

Fred wishes he would be needed forever, but he fears that will never be the case. How does this make a creation like Fred feel, and how will he end up?

Colfer comes up with an ingenious solution, sure to please readers.

Colfer, who was appointed Children’s Laureate in Ireland, writes about himself for the back cover:

“Eoin has two imaginary friends who are hilarious because they insist they are his actual sons and need stuff like food and clothing.”

Black ink drawings by talented Oliver Jeffers illustrate the text, with smudges of color added to the imaginary friends, so you can pick out who is considered “real” and who is relegated to the realm of the imaginary.

Evaluation: I love stories like this, because they not only stimulate the imagination, but encourage children to think about perspectives other than their own. ( )

A creative twist on the imaginary friend topic (see also: Beekle by Dan Santat). Imaginary Fred is pleased to have found a friend in Sam, but worries that he will begin to fade once Sam finds a "real" friend. When Sam does, though, it turns out that she has an imaginary friend too, and the four make a friend quartet. ( )
