The Imaginary by A.F. Harrold book review 


The blurb

Rudger is Amanda’s best friend. He doesn’t exist, but nobody’s perfect.

Only Amanda can see her imaginary friend – until the sinister Mr Bunting arrives at Amanda’s door. Mr Bunting hunts imaginaries. Rumour says that he eats them. And he’s sniffed out Rudger. Soon Rudger is alone, and running for his imaginary life. But can a boy who isn’t there survive without a friend to dream him up?

A brilliantly funny, scary and moving read from the unique imagination of A.F. Harrold, this beautiful book is astoundingly illustrated with integrated art and colour spreads by the award-winning Emily Gravett.


Mine and the Teens Thoughts

Both the teen and I loves this book. It is so delightful to read and gets your imagination working to it’s fullest. The characters Amanda , Rudgar, Zinzan, Snowflake and Fridge are all so brilliant and make you want to keep reading. Even the the villain Mr Bunting is likeable (in a strange way).

All the book is good but the second half is definitely better than the first, I couldn’t put it down once I’d got half way through.

We recommend this book and give it a 4/5


You can find the book on Amazon  from £5.56
