Book Description:

October 9, 2012
In second grade, Chad and his imaginary friend, Pingo, meet other kids and their imaginary friends: Gary protects the galaxy with Sparky the robot; Tiffany helps save the day with Awesome Girl; and Dustin can hide Mr. Bob in his pocket. One recess, after defeating a clan of lava monsters, Chad and his friends decide to have a contest to see which imaginary friend is the smartest or the strongest or the sneakiest. However, when Jeremy, the schoolyard bully, and his imaginary friend, Grunt, decide to prove that they re the best, Pingo saves the day by befriending Jeremy and Grunt and inviting them on an adventure down the Amazon River. We are all good at different things, and that makes friendship fun. Let's go play! A delightful, full-color picture book about the power of kindness and the importance of including others.
My Review: 
I was so excited to review this new picture book from author Brandon Mull. This is his second book in this children's picture book series. I also was happy to have another book about being friends and not bullying. I teach second grade and this book is about second graders. The illustrations are so bright and colorful, done by Brandon Dorman. The story is so engaging as it starts by talking about the children and their imaginary friends playing on the playground. They are having fun until the playground bully threatens their fun. Then the story turns into a great lesson about kindness and how to include all children in their game. This is such a great message. Every day I hear about how someone was left out of a game and feelings were hurt. This is a story that will be read often in my classroom.
The publisher has kindly sent me a copy to give away to one of my readers. (USA only) Please enter in the Rafflecopter form. Good luck!
