We love this book, it is probably one of the best books about bullies/school/standing up for yourself, types of books that we have read yet!!
My children's ages are 1,5 8 and 19, and my 8 year old has had his fair share of bullies already.
He participates in a club at his school about bullying and he is so thrilled to copy this book and read it to his class.
The author wrote this is such a genuine way, with lots of creative ideas that I haven't seen before. Making the bully "grow" and the children he picked on, "shrink", and the cute comment about the fact that Frank, (the bully), must have just learned to rhyme, lol, since he is rhyming everybody with words to make fun of them.
The lesson of courage is excellent! I hope this gives small kids across the world, hopes to do what Bart did, and stand up for themselves!
Mona has won our hearts over here at the Oliver household, again! She has such brilliant characters, and a unique way of writing about them. We are delighted to be given a chance to read these books and we are excited about the next Chick-E book as well!!
We recommend this story to ANY child, of any AGE!
