Polly has an imaginary friend called Bunny. She likes to push him around in her old pushchair and they spend many happy hours together. The only problem is that Mum and Dad will need the pushchair back soon as a new baby is on the way. They try all sorts of alternatives, but nothing is quite right; the doll’s pram is too small, the baby sling too tight. As time passes Mum and Dad are getting quite worried. However, when Polly’s new baby sister is born Polly comes up with her own very inventive plan to solve the problem.
This is a warm story about imaginative play, coping with change and compromise. The illustrations are soft and attractive with extra details to spot in each double page spread. Using a simple outline drawing to depict Polly’s imaginary friend is very effective. Although not one to choose if seeking diversity and representation this is a very appealing picturebook.
