Product Description:

What do an overachieving octopus, a zealous zither and a hopeless hippo have in common? They're all part of the zany world of Imaginary Friends, a collection of 26 hilarious, satirical tales by Melanie Lee.

Note: This is NOT a children's book. These fun fables are for the BIG kids, the young-at-heart adults who love laughs and poking fun at the silly grown-up world!

Staff Review:
Break away from the stereotypical 'Aesop Fables' which most of us have grown up with! We now have 26 A-Z imaginary friends. Each of them has a story to tell, each with their unique characters. Some of them are animals, some are fruits and a few others are everyday things.

Some of their stories teach us about life and some about work, basically the little things that we may overlook that affects us everyday. Take for example, 'Greta the Grouchy Grape'. Whether consciously or otherwise, they might be someone in the office or home that is constantly sour about everything that is happening, and no matter how much encouragement and care are being shown towards her, the grape decides it is her nature to be grouchy and alone. In the end, everyone else continues to be green and grinning, while Grouchy Grape turns crinkled and dry. Soon, she is merely thrown away into the bin, forgotten altogether.

Comments:

When you see the word "Fable" you'd automatically think it's for kids, right? Wrong. Imaginary Friends: 26 Fables for the Kid in Us might make interesting reading for a kid, but it really is for us Big Kids. For one, you'd get really tired explaining all the big words, even in the chapter titles. For another, I don't think you really want your kids to know about Chucky the Calico Cat being euthanised, Friendly Froyo Freda backstabbing Ingrid Ice Cream and Bitchy Brownie or Olivia the Overachieving Octopus being served up as fresh tako sashimi despite really valid morals such as "Never be too smug about success or good fortune; you’ll never know when the shit will hit the fan" and "Always treat celebrity gossip as fiction". The only complaint I would have is that not all the fables sound fable-like enough - but that could be just a matter of preference.
