A fine first printing of the first edition in equally fine, pictorial dust-jacket. Signed by author Dan Santat on the free endpaper with a drawing of Beekle.

Beekle is born where all imaginary friends come from. One by one, his friends are chosen by a child and whisked away, yet Beekle remains behind. Instead, he sets out in search of his perfect match in the big city. Santat’s illustrations are full of light, and his use of color and perspective make the reader feel Beekle’s longing and loneliness. All is well in the end when a girl named Alice identifies Beekle as the imaginary friend she’s been looking for. Imagination and friendship reign supreme in this delightful Caldecott winner of 2015; Color Illustrations; [40] pages.
