Imaginery-Fred-300x300Two of the biggest names in children’s books join forces in this extraordinary tale of friendship.


With beautiful words from Irish Children’s Laureate, Eoin Colfer, and stunning illustrations from picture book superstar, Oliver Jeffers, Imaginary Fred is the perfect picture book this autumn.

Sometimes, with a little electricity, or luck, or even magic, an imaginary friend might appear when you need one. An imaginary friend like Fred…

Fred floated like a feather in the wind until a lonely little boy wished for him and found a friendship like no other.
