Rocky tries all sorts of plans to end the bullying without success, even recruiting his older sister, who steps in only to make the situation worse. Eventually, however, Rocky's music teacher helps him understand Tink's behavior, which gives Rocky a new idea to try, one that might end the daily bullying, gain his father's approval, and still allow him to be a pacifist.
Links to resources about bullying and a Discussion Guide are included.
