And before you ask, Beekle is NOT an imaginary friend — he’s definitely real, and he’s definitely seeking a human to be friends with. In Dan Santat’s Caldecott Medal-winning book, Beekle leaves his homeland of magical creatures, takes the perilous voyage to the big city (aka New York) and sets out on the hunt for his special friend. It has lovely illustrations, hints on how to make friends for the uninitiated AND it comes with a free, inflatable space hopper. Just $15 of fun.
