Chad and his imaginary friend Pingo are now in the second grade and things are heating up on the playground. It's a battle of the fittest, smartest and toughest imaginary friend--a competition to prove who is best. And poor Pingo keeps coming in second. He's not a fan of competition which only proves who is best at certain things. Plus the kids and their imaginaries have a problem on their hands with the bully Grunt and his keeper Jeremy.
Pingo steps in to save the day in his own unique way. I loved this book with its message on friendship and bullying. It is perfect for young children to learn how to act before they hit the second grade. It would be a wonderful read aloud in pre school-first grade. The illustrations are incredible! I loved book one and I'm a fan of book two. Once again five stars to Pingo.
