IT ISN'T EASY TO FIND A FRIEND WHO LIKES BUGS!

In this book, Jasmine and her imaginary cat Boo have just moved. She is about to go to a new school and she is trying to make friends. Ideally, she would like a friend who shares her interest in bugs and would like to look at her bug books.

The interesting fact I learnt after completing the whole book—illustrations and all, is that by the time children go to school they no longer have imaginary friends.

There are a million rules for writing picture books that make getting published unlikely. I became aware of them one at a time and after the fact. I am definitely fully grown but still think an imaginary friend could come in handy.
