The characters are well-fleshed out and the story itself provides a powerful message that you are sure not to forget. Imaginary Friends is a story about love, acceptance, finding oneself, and most importantly--the power of imagination.
A fantastic read for any age group, Imaginary Friends is sure to tickle your funny bone and warm your heart.
Jeff Tanner is a toy executive trying to hold his family together after the death of his wife in a car accident. One of his sons (Brian) has withdrawn into a world where all he does is draw monsters. The other son (Davey) is a wise-cracking youngster who has a number of imaginary friends known only to himself. Add in a grandmother who lives with them and a next-door neighbor who provides day care for the two (and who Jeff has a bit of a crush on). During a Christmas dinner, Davey makes a wish with the turkey wishbone, and all of a sudden Jeff can see a number of strange creatures running around and creating havoc in the house. Of course, only Davey finds this normal, as they're his imaginary friends. All the rest of the family is convinced he's going off the deep end. Even leaving the house doesn't help, as every other imaginary friend in the world is out there to torment him. And we're talking "torment", as they are out to cause him physical pain...
The driving story behind the premise is that Jeff is putting Brian into a military school in an attempt to draw him out of his self-imposed shell. No one is convinced this is a good idea, Jeff included, but he doesn't know what else to do.Read more ›
Jeff Tanner works for WACK-O! TOYS INC. as a toy designer. He lives with his two small boys, Brian and Davey, and is a single parent since the death of his wife Susan three years ago, an event that left Jeff grieving and hollow but at the same time committed to raising his two sons to the best of his ability: Brian is the older and is withdrawn, spending his time sketching strange people and monsters; Davey is the clown with a rich imagination who was too young when his mother died to remember her. Susan's mother Granny Jobson lives with Jeff and the boys and is in her own somewhat detached world, spending her idle hours dancing with the memory of her deceased husband. Too near by for comfort live Jeff's parents - Grandmother and Grandfather Tanner - who disapprove of Jeff's meaningless occupation as a toy designer and are rigid in their response to the world and its occupants.
It is Christmas time and while this odd family gathers to celebrate (and remember the importance of Susan's impact), the household is somewhat disrupted by Davey's imaginary friends who create an ongoing ruckus. The atmosphere changes dramatically when Davey snaps the turkey wishbone and PRESTO!Read more ›
You can see the dramatic potential of this story and I don't want to give too much away because it is a delightful family story that is set right around Christmas. A few other details are that their local mall has a big Christmas tree display with ornaments from the local folks including a hall of fame from past years. Each year Jeff, Brian, and Davey go to see the ornaments including Susan's. They have mixed feelings in being proud that she is in the hall of fame and displayed every year and wishing they had her decoration at home. Oh, and Davey keeps getting blamed for odd occurrences in the home like pyramids of toilet paper in the bathroom.Read more ›
