What to expect

Read by Ciaran Hinds, winner of the Gold Award for Audio Performer of the Year at the Audio Production Awards 2020.

The judges said, 'A beautiful and charming performance, magically transporting the listener into another world. Emotionally enthralling from the start.'

Sometimes, with a little electricity, or luck, or even magic, an imaginary friend might appear when you need one. An imaginary friend like Fred…

Fred floated like a feather in the wind until a lonely little boy wished for him and found a friendship like no other.

The perfect chemistry between Eoin Colfer’s text and Oliver Jeffer’s artwork make for a dazzlingly original colour gift book.
