Has your best friend ever gone away and you felt like there was no one else to play with? Have you ever moved to a new town or gone to a new school? Then you probably know how it feels to be lonely. We are going to look at two books about loneliness. The first is called Imaginary Fred written by Eoin Colfer. In this book Imaginary Fred is an imaginary friend but every time someone wishes for him the same thing happens, they find a friend and then Fred disappears. This time Sam is looking for a friend and Fred is just waiting to see if the same thing will happen. The second book is called The Invisible Boy by Trudy Ludwig. In this story Brian is not noticed by anyone in his class until a new boy arrives and Brian is the first one to make him feel welcome. After this things start to change for Brian.
