I Have a Friend
The creativity of a child’s imagination, paired with his innocence, takes center stage in this endearing story, dreamily rendered through collage art. Wise, friendly, imaginary friend Vladimir comes to life through young Henry’s colorfully childish words, along with his size-shifting and loyal pets. Iceland, India, and the house next door are evoked in these pages like worlds from a child’s mind. Judith Inglese’s innovative artwork patches together sketches and photographs to round out this eccentric tale. Ages three to six.
