Who has the best imaginary friend? Is it Gary, who protects the galaxy with Sparky the robot? Or Tiffany, who helps save the day with Awesome Girl? Or Dustin, who can hide Mr. Bob in his pocket? During recess, Chad and Pingo are invited to participate in the contest to see which imaginary friend is the smartest or the strongest or the sneakiest. But when Jeremy, the schoolyard bully, and his imaginary friend, Grunt, barge into the contest, demanding to be included, no one expects what happens next--or how Pingo saves the day.
Pingo and the Playground Bully is a delightful, full-color picture book about the power of kindness and the importance of including others.
Pingo and the Playground Bully is another sweet story of Chad and his imaginary friend Pingo. Together with Gary, Tiffany, and Dustin they try to see who has the smartest, strongest, and sneakiest imaginary friend. Until Jeremy the bully comes along with his imaginary friend, Grunt. I loved how this sweet story is told, and the lesson it teaches. The illustrations are amazing. Full of fun details, and the pictures are beautiful to look at.
5 out of 5 stars. Just an all around sweet story with a great message of learning how to help with a bully. I have a copy of Pingo and the Playground Bully to giveaway! Fill out the Rafflecopter form below and you're entered.
