The Imaginary is a wonderfully moving, at once funny and startling story about friendship and the ability to dream things up – and one boy’s brave determination to protect both. Brimming with unforgettable characters, surprising twists and stunning illustrations by Emily Gravett, The Imaginary is a treat from start to finish.
Rudger is Amanda’s best friend. He doesn't exist, but nobody's perfect.
Only Amanda can see her imaginary friend – until the sinister Mr Bunting arrives at Amanda's door. Mr Bunting hunts imaginaries. Rumour says that he eats them. And he's sniffed out Rudger. Soon Rudger is alone, and running for his imaginary life. But can a boy who isn’t there survive without a friend to dream him up?
A brilliantly funny, scary and moving read from the unique imagination of A.F. Harrold, this beautiful book is astoundingly illustrated with integrated art and colour spreads by the award-winning Emily Gravett.
