Review: Imaginary Fred

Imaginary Fred Imaginary Fred by Eoin Colfer
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

"Eventually they concluded that friendship is friendship. Imaginary or not, the same rules apply."

This sweet story about friendship kept making me think of the film "Drop Dead, Fred." It is an interesting story and I love the use of colors and line to define the "real" and the "imaginary," and I think there is a lot in this book that merits discussion, but I just wanted it to be a little more. With such heavy hitters in writing and illustrating, I wanted this very unique story to hold a little more around the middle of the story--maybe a little less esoteric?

I still really like it. 3.5 stars
