My nephew pulled this one off the shelf at the library today, and he seemed to think it was an acceptable book. I wasn't sure that he was really tuning in to the words of the story, but he was certainly absorbing the pictures. He wanted to check this one out, but I sat it down and forgot it. He was able to relay this story to his sister, however, and much to my surprise, he actually *had* been listening to the words!
It was a fine enough story. I think that there are better books about bullies out there, but this one wasn't *terrible.* I thought it was a little boring, but my nephew liked it well enough to tell the tale to his sister, so it must have some appeal.
