Benjamin Dilley has the most wonderful imagination. He could vividly imagine all sorts of things. He was amazed that no one else saw what he did. When Benjamin's dad is unable to fix a leak in the basement, causing a small catostrophy, his imaginary camel comes to the rescue. I found this book to be visually engaging and very funny. There are three companion books to this title: Giants Come in Different Sizes, The Flying Hockey Stick, and Pickle-Chiffon Pie.

If anyone has a flood in their basement you will be grateful that your kid has an invisible camel who is thirsty! :-D

This was a favorite of Honey Bunny's when he was younger, but its value was evident before it made a sentimental place for itself in my heart!
