121 Imaginary Fred
Colfer, Eoin ; Jeffers, Oliver HarperCollins Children's Books 2015 0008126143 / 9780008126148 First Edition Hard Cover New New 4to - over 9" - 12" tall 
New hardback, in excellent fine condition. First impression. Slim unpaginated children's picture book. An extraordinary collaboration between Irish Children's Laureate, Eoin Colfer, and picture book superstar, Oliver Jeffers! 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. The perfect chemistry between Eoin Colfer's text and Oliver Jeffer's artwork make for a dazzlingly original colour gift book. The dust jacket is supplied by us in a loose protective clear archival film sleeve. This does not adhere to the book or jacket in any way and it protects the jacket against wear. 058039

As the story alternates between their small town and across-the-ocean Ireland, two worlds are woven together, revealing that hearts can be mended and that there is indeed a gossamer thread that connects us all. 058063
