Review by Bobbi Zahra

Written in 2012, this story was a 2013 finalist for both La Prix Jeunesse des Libraires du Québec and the Governor-General’s Literary Award. Award-winning author Lili Chartrand adds another to her oeuvre of more than 40 published works for children with her sweet story of the unlikely friendship between Pierrot and Mr. Fred, each of them in their own way a dreamer.

Pierrot is a little boy whose friends are all imaginary – until he meets Mr. Fred, a real friend with an imaginary book.
Mr. Fred shares magical – and some not-so-magical – stories with Pierrot, some that light up a youthful imagination, and others that offer a look into Mr. Fred’s surprisingly tragic life.

This is certainly a story about loss, but it is, in a certain way, also a story of redemption. In sharing his story, Mr. Fred teaches Pierrot a lesson about the compassion and the gift of simple presence that Pierrot never forgets.
