This book came highly recommended by Larrabee, and I agree that it’s a perfect summer vacation read (or read aloud). It’s a British book about an imaginative girl named Amanda Shuffleup, her best (and imaginary) friend Rudger, and the sinister Mr. Bunting, who eats imaginaries. I found it both entertaining and profound.
As you can see from the cover, the illustrations by Emily Gravett are amazing too.
Thank you to Aunt Kay and Uncle Christian who gave this book to Larrabee for his birthday.
And thank you to my own imaginary friends, Little Wolf and Annie, for joining me on many a childhood adventure. I still remember you.
