This enchanting tale is at once a beautifully rendered narrative of childhood loss and a powerfully simple fable about the necessity of imagination.

Pobby and Dingan are Kellyanne Williamson’s best friends, maybe her only friends, and only she can see them. Kellyanne’s brother, Ashmol, can’t see them and doesn’t believe they exist anywhere but in Kellyanne’s immature imagination. Only when Pobby and Dingan disappear and Kellyanne becomes heartsick over their loss does Ashmol realize that not only must he believe in Pobby and Dingan, he must convince others to believe in them, too.

From the Back Cover:

“Unforgettable. . . . An enormously touching, imaginative and unexpected novel that just glows in your hands.” –The New York Times Book Review

“Glorious. . . . Ben Rice has crafted a charming, deceptively simple story, then given it color, richness and depth.” -New York Post

“By turns quirky, shocking, moving, funny, fantastical and all too real. . . . [Rice is] an almost astonishingly gifted writer.” —The Observer (London)

“A gem. . . . odd, bewitching, and memorable.” –The Commercial Appeal

“Packed with more winning details and full-blooded characters than many over-stuffed novels.” —Houston Chronicle

“At once delicate and down to earth . . . [Pobby and Dingan] has a quiet strength.” –The Washington Post

“A disarmingly gentle yet disturbingly layered tale about buried truths.” –Los Angeles Times Book Review

“Wondrous and moving. . . . Downright charming. . . . A winner.” –The Arizona Republic

“Rice has fashioned a fable that will echo in reader’s imaginations every time they catch themselves communicating with loved ones who are not strictly beside them.” —Boston Herald

“Rice has created an enchanting fictional world that lives and breathes . . . [and] beautifully articulates childhood's life-changing moments.” –Book Magazine

"Quirky, moving and completely unexpected. It will charm all but the most determined cynic.” —Daily Telegraph

“Original, witty and entertaining.” –Rocky Mountain News
