Confessions of an Imaginary Friend


Jacques Papier thinks that everyone hates him. After all, teachers ignore him when he raises his hand in class, nobody ever picks him for sports teams, and his sister, Fleur, keeps having to remind their parents to set a place for him at the dinner table. But then Jacques discovers an uncomfortable truth: He is NOT Fleur's brother; he's her imaginary friend! And so begins Jacques' quest for identity ... what do you do when you realise that the only reason you exist is because of someone else's imagination? The whimsical "autobiography" of an imaginary friend who doesn't know he's imaginary - perfect for fans of Toy Story, The Imaginary and Moone Boy.

I loved this book so so much.  I was shocked when I found out about the imaginary friend.  (Name removed so I dont spoil this for other readers)  It was like I was on a rollercoaster ride with so many emotions zooming into me.  My favourite characters were Fleur and Felice.  I enjoyed this story so so much and will be passing it onto my friends and siblings.

This is such a clever book. The tale is told from the perspective of the 'brother' who overhears a conversation which leads him to realise that he is an imaginary friend.  We go on a journey with him where he discovers self help groups full of other imaginary friends, and just like the real world there are officious people who then place him with other families who need an imaginary friend.  The story makes you laugh out loud and it is a really fun book to read with your children.

I absolutely loved this story. I didn't know what to expect when I first started reading it, but within a few pages my attention was totally gripped! I loved it that Jacques the main character of the story feels that lots of people dislike him (apart from his sister Fleur that is).  It's really funny but also sad at times. I felt sad for Jacques when he explains how other children and teachers all ignore him in school. I really felt like Jacques is a real person and not an imaginary one (this is what we discover little by little, and so does Jacques to his surprise!. A very interesting end and a great read. I enjoyed reading it with my mum because she made funny voices when we read it together. I can really recommend this book. It was brilliant!!! Wesley (9 years and 3/4)
