I was delighted when Freckleface Strawberry and the Dodgeball Bully
arrived in my mailbox. Grandchildren, Sarah and Ryan, were visiting
and wanted to help me review the book. The cover is beautifully done
and hints at the story inside. The first thing Sarah mentioned was
the beautiful illustrations. The faces are expressive.
Freckleface is an adorable redheaded girl. She loves to go to school
early, so she can have extra playtime. She is very good at playing
jump rope, tetherball, and four square. Sometimes they played
monster, Freckleface?s favorite game. Early Bird playtime is fun,
unless it is raining. If it rains, the students must play in the
gym. The horrible, scary dodge ball comes out. Windy Pants Patrick
throws the ball hard. He?s a bully. One day, when it was raining,
Freckleface was the last person out. She realized the ball didn?t
hurt as much as she thought and that Windy Pants Patrick was afraid of
Sarah and Ryan both loved Freckleface Strawberry and the Dodgeball
Bully. They learned the importance of making friends. They also
learned that sometimes the things you are most afraid of are not
really scary. Sarah said, ?I love to play dodge ball.? Ryan said,
?That bully was afraid of monsters; he wasn?t such a bad kid after all.?
We give this book a 5-star rating. As a grandmother, I appreciate
books that teach children to get along. Julliet Moore as a talented
author as well as an incredible actress.
