"I didn't do it. I'm Innocent Sid.
But if you'll just listen I'll tell you who did.
Kevin. Y-yes, that's right, Kevin. He did it.
Why don't you just ask him? He'll have to admit it."

Uh-oh. Sid Gibbons is in trouble again. Time to think fast. When he makes yet another mess, and his mum has run out of patience, Sid does what every quick-thinking kid would do. He blames it on his big, furry, vanilla-and-pink, make-believe friend Kevin. It seemed like a good idea at the time, but Sid gets an unexpected surprise when he finds out that Kevin and his world might not be so imaginary after all. And while his friend might be make-believe, his feelings are very real.

An enchanting and uplifting story of make-believe with real heart, Kevin will be your new best friend.
