This is a story about friendship. Chad and his imaginary friend, Pingo, have wonderful adventures together until Chad starts getting teased. Brandon Mull (Fablehaven, The Beyonders, The Five Kingdoms) teams up with illustrator Brandon Dorman (Pirates of the Sea!, and oodles of book covers & illustrations) to deliver this timeless tale of true friendship and imagination. This is a wonderful book for any kid that has ever had an imaginary friend.

When you were younger, did you ever have an imaginary friend? Like many other kids his age, Chad has one named Pingo. They fight ninjas, brew magical potions, and float in zero gravity. But as Chad grows older, his "real" friends begin to tease him about having an imaginary friend, and one day Chad decides that he is too old for Pingo. From that day forward, Chad no longer has an imaginary friend. He has an imaginary enemy! What will Pingo do as Chad becomes a teenager, an adult, and finally an old man? And what will Chad do? Brandon Mull is also the author of the New York Times bestselling "Fablehaven" series. Brandon Dorman is also the illustrator of the No. 1 New York Times bestseller The Wizard. Together, they have produced a touching story that children will think is great fun and adults will find a little bit nostalgic. I certainly agree with the observation on the inside jacket flap that "Pingo is a delightful read-a-loud picture book about the importance of imagination and friendship." Kids may laugh at the antics of Pingo and Chad, but at the end those of us who are a little older may have to wipe a slight tear out of our eyes. A great children's book!

Just received my copy of PINGO and have to give it nothing less then 5 stars. This wonderful picture book has it all. A clever twist on imaginary friends and fantastic illustrations. Every home with children should have this book. My Children love the way "Pingo" rolls off their tongue. A true success for Brandon Mull and Brandon Dorman!
