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.

I actually just saw this book for the first time this week. I believe it was released back in October in the UK but we haven’t gotten it here yet unfortunately. The illustrations throughout the book look beautiful. The book just sounds fantastic and I am definitely going to have to add this to my shelf. I have no shame in reading children’s or middle grades books in public so I’ll definitely be reading this at work as soon as I can get my hands on it.

What book are you looking forward to?
