He was born in the magical land far away where all imaginary creatures are, and where they wait to be chosen by their child and given their name. But though he waits and waits, he is never called. So he does the unimaginable: he sets out to the real world to find his new friend himself. Who will they be? What will they name him? Finding a friend can prove to be hard, but when he does, he finds that sometimes the best friends are the ones that find us.
Once again, Santat weaves a world rich with detail and magic with his story and illustrations. Beekle, as he comes to be named, is adorable and instantly endearing, and will win over readers of all ages. The illustrations are colorful and bursting with life, and the length is fine for baby bookworms. JJ and I both really enjoyed this book! Baby Bookworm approved!
