All characters in fiction are imaginary friends. We spend time with them, listen to them, laugh with them, sometimes fall in love with them. No one else knows them like we do. It can be embarrassing to talk to them when other people are in the room. This list is about imaginary friends characters in books have had, so the imaginary friends of my imaginary friends, you might say. I can therefore guarantee this list will seem inadequate, wrongheaded and disappointing to many people. But never mind, at no point does it claim to be exhaustive or exclusive. Feel free to add to it. Possibly my favourite Raymond Briggs book, along with most of the others, this one tells the story of a girl who wakes up one morning to find a polar bear has climbed into her bedroom. They spend the day together.

William is a child rebel in stifling suburbia. His instincts are against social climbing, pseudo-intellectualism and the humdrum. Harry Flashman, that fictional reprobate - wenching and dodging his way through the major military engagements of the 19th century - is funnier, more honest and certainly less harmful than many of the real brave fools whose paths he double-crosses. You just can't help liking the amiable cad. Philip Pirrip Pip , of Great Expectations , gripped me at the earliest age. Like him, I had hopes of escaping the loving, but limited, quotidian world that surrounded me. And, like Pip, I learnt to be ashamed of those good people that I loved and then bitterly ashamed of that shame. Joe Gargery in Charles Dickens's Great Expectations is so decent and so real that you always think you know him. Eager and ambitious for the poisonous Pip, Joe is humble and self-effacing.
