Then someone tapped me hard on my shoulder.
I spun around.
It was Joe.
"How's Dimples' little boo-boo?" he asked.
"Stop calling me that," I said.
"Now don't get so excited," he sneered. "It makes your face look like a tomato-a tomato with worm holes."

Lawrence hates being teased about his dimples, but nothing he does seems to make any difference. Joe goes right on teasing him, and the teasing gets meaner and meaner. Finally, Lawrence notices something about his friend Stewart that may provide the tool he needs to tease-proof himself once and for all.

Editorial Reviews

Canadian Book Review Annual
"A very good choice for beginning readers. Recommended."
Children's Literature
On Lawrence's first day of school, Joe starts bothering him and giving him nicknames like "Dimples." Lawrence does not know what to do to get Joe to stop, and he wishes with all his might that he did not have any dimples. Stewart is Lawrence's best friend, and they work together to come up with ideas that will make Joe leave Lawrence alone. Lawrence practices very hard and is able to ignore Joe, but that does not work and Joe continues to bother him. Then Lawrence realizes that if he doesn't smile, his dimples cannot be seen. He practices hard and manages to go a whole day without smiling, but Joe just teases him because he looks so gloomy. Then, one day, Lawrence realizes that a lot of kids call Stewart nicknames and Stewart does not get upset. Lawrence decides to try Stewart's trick and to laugh along with those who call him names. His chance to test his idea comes the next day, and by the time Joe is done teasing Lawrence, Joe is the one walking away upset and confused. This book was a great way to address the issues of school bullies and how to deal with teasing and name-calling. This book is also about being a good friend and being there for each other. This book is part of the "Orca Echoes" series. 2005, Orca Book Publishers, Ages 7 to 9.
