Have you heard of Brandon Mull? Well, he's kind of a wickedly awesome author of a few of my favorite books, like Fablehaven!
I received Brandon's latest picture book, PINGO and the Playground Bully illustrated by the talented Brandon Dorman and my kids loved it.
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.
So where's the Trick or Treat? Well, I'm pretty lucky because I also received Brandon's latest novel Book 2 of THE CANDY SHOP WAR-- Arcade Catastrophe. What better way to celebrate Halloween than by giving away a free copy of this delicious book?!
It will take more than magical candy to win this war!
Something fishy is going on at the new amusement center in Walnut
Hills. The trouble seems linked to the mysterious disappearance of
Mozag and John Dar, who have spent their lives policing the magical
community. When Nate and his friends are asked to help investigate, they
discover kids feverishly playing arcade games in an effort to win
enough tickets to redeem one of four stamps: jets, tanks, submarines,
Rumor has it that the stamps are definitely worth it. But what do they do?
The kids soon discover that the owner of Arcadeland is recruiting
members for four different clubs. When each club is filled, he will
begin his quest to retrieve a magical talisman of almost unimaginable
power. With John Dart and Mozag sidelined, will Nate, Summer, Trevor,
Pigeon, and their new friend Lindy, find a way to save the day? Find out
in this sweetest adventure ever!
I read lots of books aloud to my two older daughters while my hubby reads to the little boys each night. The girls are so excited about reading this new series together!
