Book description:  Theo is a young boy who has an imaginary friend called Bags.  Bags looks like Theo but Bags is smaller and you will notice that he wears red, stripy socks.  Bags is lively, sometimes he is too lively. In this story Bags visits Theo and prevents him from learning to read by causing him lots of trouble.
