The Adventures of BEEKLE the Unimaginary Friend

on January 27, 2016

Beekle is the story of an unimaginary friend who doesn’t have a child. He waits and waits, but still, no one imagines him. Tired of waiting, Beekle sets off on a journey to find where he truly belongs. Using strength and courage, he makes his way to the real world. Now the question becomes. . .how to find his child?

Looking here and looking there, Beekle finally arrives at a park surrounded by children running and jumping. He is very hopeful he will find a friend, his friend, soon.

The day wanes, and still no friend. But suddenly, as luck would have it, a piece of paper is blown into the tree where Beekle is waiting, and soon, he meets his friend!

The story of Beekle is timeless. The book speaks to our desire for companionship and community. It shows littles that although things don’t always go the way we imagine, they do go, and sometimes they even turn out better than we had imagined.

Dan Santat is the author/illustrator, and this is his third book for children. His artwork is darling. I especially love Alice’s facial expressions, Beekle’s crown (which is taped together like all crowns) and his little shape! Cute, cute!
