Outraged Ingus jumped high up With all of his might And stomped both his feet with a thump Into a puddle full of muddiest of all mud, As soon as he dropped back down With a boom onto the dirty ground, Splashing sludge All over the walls and the floor, While swinging forcefully shut his barn door. -- “I’ve finally had it,” in despair, he swore. -- “Enough is enough! -- I need a new Amazonian life! ”
When Dr. Ingus takes a walk to find some new friends, he quickly gets lost deep in the Amazon jungle. It’s when Ingus is at his most desperate that he meets the wild Pingus. Ingus and Pingus are instant friends and set off together on a series of adventures that take both of them places they never imagined.

So What’s Your Delay? Get Your Copy of Ingus and Pingus and Make Your Child’s Day
This is a fun, quick read. My nephews will enjoy this book. Although, my youngest nephew who is 6 years old may need help pronouncing a few of the larger words but otherwise, he could read this book on his own. The illustrations are very well done and colorful but not too cluttered either. Even with me reading this book on my computer the graphics were great. Back to the story, I like the rhyming which was simple and short. For the younger readers like my youngest nephew this is great as he has a short attention span. This book is a nice introduction to this series and to Ingus and Pingus.
In this second book, Ingus and Pingus do start out with a rocky start to their friendship but a situation brings them closer and in the end they become the best of friends. As I travel with these two into the Amazon jungle, I am intrigued by all of the different animals they have encountered thus far and will encounter along the rest of their journey. Again, the illustrations really helped bring the story to life. The rhyming I noticed a little less in this book. Yet, still an enjoyable read.
