Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“A deceptively simple approach to dealing with a difficult issue faced by millions of children every day.”—School Library Journal 

“This self-help guide is packed with mind-easing information.”  —Carolina Parent

“Attractive format . . . especially accessible to children.”—School Library Journal

Read, America! Selection

School Library Journal
Gr 3-7A deceptively simple approach to dealing with a difficult issue faced by millions of children every day. The advice throughout is clear, unequivocal, and helpful: "Tell your friends if you're being bullied. A bully is less likely to approach you if you're surrounded by your buddies." The advice for dealing with life-threatening situations is brief: "Run!" Fictional books abound on the topicone of the most well-known being Mary Stolz's The Bully of Barkham Street HarperCollins, 1985. Eda LeShan's nonfiction title When Kids Drive Kids Crazy Dial, 1990; o.p. deals extensively with the subject and provides excellent coping skills both for the victims of intimidation and abuse and for parents trying to help. However, bullied children are much more likely to pick up Romain's book on their initial foray into self-help, due to the attractive format with cartoon characters and lots of white space on the page. Resources for additional help include books, organizations, and Web sites. This useful, slim volume will have heavy usage.Susan R. Farber, Ardsley Public Library, NY

    Recommend for young kids

    This book was written so it is very understandable for younger kids. It would be a good tool along with counseling and other help. Still the focus, like most info on bullying, is how to deal with it if a victim and we need more books and info to focus on changing the bullies and consequences for them.

    Worst ever

    This book is very horrible; I would not spend my time reading it. It's much too stereotypical because the bullies in this book beat kids up and make them give up their lunch money. It tells you about different types of bullies, but it only explains the ones where they hurt you or call you names. It says that bullies love it when they make you cry but that's not true for most bullies. Also this book doesn't give very good advice; one of the things it tells you to do is run. But according to most of this book bullies are normally bigger and stronger than you; so running in those situations would be useless. This book also states that bullies love power, draining self esteem, and they only feel good when you're life is miserable. One good thing about this book is in one small section it tells you to go to an adult. But most of this book is filled with stereotypical situations and has jokes that truthfully just make it look dumb; and some of the advice and facts are so untrue it's almost laughable. This book is irrelevant to life in this time period and place; you will not learn anything from it except what a physical bully is. I highly suggest that you do not read this book.
