Janell does everything with her best friend, Neesie, but Mama and Daddy can't seem to understand that Neesie's not made up. She's very real ... to Janell.
In Me & Neesie, Eloise Greenfield offers a reassuring story about the special place an imaginary friend and a loving, caring family have in a little girl's heart. First published in 1975, Me & Neesie was selected as a Reading Rainbow book. This special thirtieth anniversary edition has been illustrated with new, vibrant paintings by Jan Spivey Gilchrist.
