Rudger, an imaginary playmate, must find his friend Amanda before he fades away to nothing, while eluding the only other person who can see him, evil Mr. Bunting, who hunts--and possibly even eats—imaginaries. The appealing cover illustration lets us know this tale is a bit dark, but kids find it very appealing.
