Sid is always up to mischief but doesn’t like being told off, so he invents a yellow and pink imaginary friend called Kevin to take the blame. His mum rolls her eyes and sends him to his bedroom where a pink and yellow staircase magically appears. Sid finds himself in a magical land, face to face with Kevin. “I cannot believe you’re actually real! You’re just like my drawing! No need to pretend.” Realising he is imaginary in Kevin’s world Sid enjoys creating havoc in Kevin’s home, prompting a downcast Kevin to get sent to his bedroom by his father. “Suddenly Sidney did not feel so clever. He actually felt like the least best-friend ever. He went up the stairs full of sorrow and guilt.” Sid apologises to Kevin and sets out to make everything right. He next apologises to his mother and admits everything was his fault, blaming no one again for his behaviour.
