In this Caldecott Medal book, imaginary friends are born on a magical island. Little by little, each creature is imagined by a child and goes to live in the real world. Beekle waits, but no one chooses him; this moment might remind some readers of the childhood dread of being picked last for a team. Yet Beekle never becomes discouraged. Instead, he takes matters into his own hands and travels to the real world to find his friend.
