Book giveaway: Imaginary Fred by Eoin Colfer and Oliver Jeffers

Imaginary Fred is the extraordinary collaboration between Irish Children's Laureate and author of the Artemis Fowl series Eoin Colfer, and picture book superstar illustrator 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 Jeffers' artwork make for a dazzlingly original book.
