School Library JournalGr 2-5-- Written in a ``Choose Your Own Adventure'' format, this book deals with a common problem faced by elementary school children. Readers explore a number of alternative solutions for dealing wtih a bully through selecting from a series of decisions and turning to designated pages to discover the probable outcomes. Possible decisions include talking to the bus driver, asking advice from the teacher, fighting the bully, and ignoring him. All of the solutions are viable and all eventually result in an end to the bullying while realistically noting that although the two boys can come to accomodate each other, they are unlikely to become friends. A useful book for helping students focus on possible problem solving techniques. --Phyllis K. Kennemer, Green Mountain Elementary School, Lakewood, Colo.
