“Dodger (and his Bottomless Well of Treats) is back for another hilarious adventure! His quest to get Willie elected as 5th-grade class president includes posters, speeches, junk food, and ... a flying carpet! This one is laugh-out-loud funny. Long live Dodger!”
— Christopher Rose, Andover Bookstore, Andover, MA

In this second installment of Jordan Sonnenblick's Dodger and Me series, the humor runs high, the friendships run deep, and Dodger continues to run on French fries and good intentions.

What would you do if your best friend was:

1. Still imaginary (and still an oversize blue chimp with major junk-food issues)?
2. Nominating you to run for class president – against the most popular kid in your grade?
3. In charge of your campaign posters…all blue, of course, including your face!?
4. Planning a magical secret weapon to help you win (not fair and square, right?)?
5. Driving you crazy?!?!

Now you have an idea of what Willie Ryan's life is like as his adventures with Dodger continue. The last thing Willie wants to do is run for class president, but both his running mate, Lizzie, and Dodger won't let him quit – and have their own ideas of how to run a campaign, especially against James Beeks, Mr. Popularity.

Praise For Dodger for President (Dodger and Me #2)

“The outlandish tone should please Dodger's fans.” —Booklist

“Dodger's silly sense of humor is entertaining, and the situations in which Willie finds himself will have any reader laughing out loud. Willie's awkward affection for his friend Lizzie is a sweet aside to the story. Reluctant readers will find themselves cheering on Willie and wanting to read more in the series.” —VOYA

“A magical tale of affection, family, and a boy's imaginative ('imaginary' doesn't do it justice) friendship with an inspired, demented blue chimpanzee...” —Kirkus Reviews on Dodger and Me

“The humor will draw kids, including Dodger's off-the-wall dialogue and the outlandish predicaments that result when he decides to 'help.'” —Booklist on Dodger and Me
