        Dan Santat Is a well-known author, some of his books are a fascination for readers like in the The Adventures of Beekle: The Unimaginary Friend book, this is one of the most wanted Dan Santat author readers around the world.


    1. The Adventures of Beekle: The Unimaginary Friend by Dan Santat is a cute story about an unimaginary friend and his search for a child.This is a super simple read great for young or new readers with about one hand-written sentence per page. The story is interesting and the illustrations are done with pencil, crayons, paint and more which makes the book extremely vibrant. It's no wonder this was the 2015 Caldecott Medal winner.4****

    2. Okay, little known fact about me: I read children's picture books. Mostly when I'm at work at the library, but I do read them.This book, is SPECIALBeekle is the story of an imaginary friend who goes off in search of his human child and his adventures along the way.I LOVE THIS BOOK. And you will too. So to my friends who have children, I highly recommend this book. It's a keeper.

    3. Delighted. Each page and idea delighted and enchanted me. I love this book about Beekle. I think Caldecott really got it right this year.I love how it starts off in a land of imagination with hyper colors and the stars deliver them to where they need to be. Beekle isn't chosen so they set off to the real world to find someone. This land is gray and brown and not as colorful. I love how he shows all the things adults do are like children. Adults nap on the subway - this tickled me to no end. Any [...]

    4. I know I’ve said this before, but I love stories about imaginary friends. They’ve always captured my attention and imagination because I've never ever had one. All my brothers and sisters had imaginary friends, but nope! Not me. *pouts*Beekle, an adorable white marshmallow-puff of a little guy with a crown, is an imaginary friend. He lives in a faraway land where imaginary friends dream and wait. Wait and wait to be imagined by boys and girls. But what happens if no one comes for Beekle? Wha [...]

    5. This children's book is so goddamn adorable. I walked into a heavily populated NYC bookstore, went right up to the counter of the children's section, and announced to the clerk (and the entire store, of course), my intent of purchasing this kid's book as a grown man with no children of his own.I don't care that people stared or maybe passed judgment on the adult with the five-o'clock-shadow, who was bouncing with eagerness at the prospect of joining in Beekle's adventure.This is one of the cutes [...]

    6. This is one of the best children’s picture books I’ve read ever. Gorgeous illustrations and an inspiring story of friendship! You won’t regret reading this one to your little ones.

    7. Now I realise that Dan Santat's The Adventures of Beekle: The Unimaginary Friend won the Caldecott Medal, and that judging from the for the most part very positive reviews, many readers do seem to really really love the illustrations (that they are considered expressive, imaginative and even rather magical). However and all that having been said, I for one have not at ALL enjoyed either the illustrations (their Caldecott Medal designation notwithstanding) or the accompanying text, the presented [...]

    8. This book was a fantasy about an imaginary friend who awaits his own friend on an island. When he is unnoticed for far too long he wanders off across the sea and into a big new city to find his real friend -- where they meet, and have adventures, share snacks and jokes with one another. The target audience for this book would be aimed towards primary grade levels, (K-3rd). I believe it is still a relevant time for some students to possibly have imaginary friends of their own, or to create imagin [...]

    9. The gym that I go to is having a book fair, and I was staring longingly at the merchandise for the entire time that I was working out today. (How I miss going to book fairs!) Afterwards, I just had to see what was inside this book, because the little guy on the cover looks just like an Adipose. This story plays with the idea of what imaginary friends are doing when they're not "on call", which reminded me of another excellent children's book that I read recently, Crenshaw. Whereas Crenshaw was a [...]

    10. Dan Santat continues to amaze me. He is a brilliant children's book artist. I could look at his illustrations for hours. This book, may be his best artwork to date. The illustrations in this book are amazing. Your eyes keep searching and trying to remember all of the patterns and colors he uses. But then, there is also this heart wrenching story. We meet Beekle, who is waiting to be someone's friend. He sees all of his other imaginary friends that have been imagined by a real child and they are [...]

    11. So so so so so soooooooo good! Beekle is an imaginary friend, born in the land of imaginary creatures, but he's restless for his friend. He's tired of waiting to be dreamed up by a child so he sets off on a quest in the real world to find his friend.Text has the perfect tone for the subject. The story is told through the foreign eyes of Beekle and his observations about the real world are full of humor. The origin of his friendship is incredibly heartwarming and illustrated to perfection in pane [...]

    12. Optimism, positivity, taking action, facing fears, venturing into the unknown.In other words, everything you want in a book for children. Or - everything you want as long as what you also want is charm and gorgeousness and soul. Beekle feels like Dan Santat opening up his grown-up boy heart, his dad heart, his maybe-a-little-bit-misunderstood artist heart (he was supposed to be a doctor after all) and pulling out the pale little blobby wad of resolve and courage that has lit his path. We should [...]

    13. I LOVED THIS BOOK! It's a great imagination discussion starter and the creativity of it is out of this world.

    14. Eh. Santat had a good time making a raft of imaginary friends, all of whom were creatures instead of people. The little marshmallowy, pokemonny main character can't wait around for someone to imagine him. This is a fun concept, but the story itself has little to it other than that concept. An uneventful and fairly boring search ends just right. Eh. Santat's sensibility for how to compose a double-page spread is very good--it was especially interesting to see some of what he did with contrast in [...]

    15. This was just okay. There is a land of imaginary friends. In this land lives white-blob-looking-thing-that-wears-a-crown-for-some-reason. Tons of its friends get picked/invented by children and leave to go live in the real world with their child-friend. However, nobody chooses white-blob-looking-thing-that-wears-a-crown-for-some-reason.So the thing goes on some adventures in imagination land. And then somehow makes it to the real world, where it is grey and boring. But then white-blob-looking-th [...]

    16. Beekle is from an island far away where imaginary friends are born. Every night he waits for his special child to come and snatch him up as her friend, but sadly, that night never comes. Beekle is impatient to find his unimaginary friend so rather than wait his turn, he sets out on a quest to find his special child.After I finished The Adventures of Beekle, I just had to sit and let it linger for a while before I could do anything else. The illustrations are bright and vibrant and the story will [...]

    17. The Adventures of Beekle, The Unimaginary Friend by Dan Santat – upon finishing this book, my son and I immediately reread it. We couldn’t get enough of the end papers, chatted about whether we preferred the hard cover or sleeve more for the design, talked about friendship, and chatted about imaginary friends. I loved finding a new book that once again leads me to talking about being brave and taking risks! Highly recommend hopping up, running to the store, and purchasing a copy of this trea [...]

    18. A really cute book written from the perspective of the imaginary friend as it waits to be picked to be a child’s imaginary friend.

    19. A cute and moving story about a poor little imaginary friend who can't find a kid to adopt him. I liked the story and the challenging premise (I don't meet often books with imaginary friends, it seems it's an unknown territory for most grown-ups). The main character was cute and also brave, and his adventure was beautifully drawn. The colors and several pages were gorgeous and I liked the care put in designing a good variety of imaginary creatures, with different shapes and colors.

    20. I loved Beekle before I even knew him (I mean, who couldn't love him by just looking at that cover), but I love him even more now that I know his story. He is imagination. He is friendship. He is special.Read to Trent for the first time 1-17-16.

    21. The pictures are gorgeous, and the story could not be more sweet and charming. As an adult, I loved this book. But for whatever reason, not ONE of my three kids would sit still and listen to me read this. I lost all of them after a couple of pages.

    22. Creative book that definitely deserved the Caldecott! The illustrations were amazing! Also love that a Thai American was able to win the medal-that doesn't factor into the ranking though ;) 4.5 stars.

    23. To find all my reviews: dancinginth3darkCan I just say that this is one of the most adorable creature I have ever seen in a children's book!! I absolutely adore this book even though it is extremely short and not much action but nonetheless I have a huge feeling that this will be turn into an animated film which would be phenomenal and get into more details about Beekle and this imaginary world. In this imaginary island, these creatures are created into existence so that way when a child comes u [...]

    24. Oh, how fun it is to work in a library and in the children's department! I found this book while looking through our new selections and quickly read it. I think I will be buying this book for my young nephew who will love the beautiful illustrations in this book. I really like the theme of this book. I had an imaginary friend had a child and I remember as a child thinking I could do anything and everything with my imaginary friend. This book captures that essence and children and adults who read [...]

    25. We're giving 2015 Caldecott winner Beekle five shiny, golden stars, and we'd give even more if we could. Santat's illustrations are sweet and charming; they harmonize perfectly with Beekle's story. And the story! Such simple, strong messages about friendship and imagination and perseverance--lovely from beginning to end. We guarantee that this one will end up in your bedtime reading pile night after night after night after night
