The Imaginary

(2) 4-6 Illustrated by Emily Gravett. Mr. Bunting, who eats "imaginaries" to stay alive, sets his sights on Amanda's imaginary friend, Rudger. While Amanda and Rudger run away, Amanda is hit by a car; Rudger, forgotten by his unconscious creator, begins to "Fade." Illustrations indicate how real characters are to each other using transparency and opacity, color and black-and-white. A nuanced exploration of imagination and memory.
