The Meanest Thing to Say (Little Bill Series) by Bill Cosby, Varnette P. Honeywood

This easy-to-read story about peer pressure by comedian and storyteller Bill Cosby is now a Scholastic Reader!

Michael Reilly has introduced a new game to Little Bill and his friends. You get twelve chances to say something mean to another kid--and whoever comes up with the biggest insult is the winner.

Insults start flying: "Jose hops with the frogs in science lab!" "Andrew eats frogs for dinner!" "Little Bill shoots baskets like a girl!"

Little Bill tries to think of really mean things to say in retaliation. But Dad teaches him a strategy that enables Little Bill to save face while remaining the nice kid that he really is!

This book should be read by all young kids in school at one time or another. It shows how to defeat a bully whose only intention is to spread hate. It also tells how to win friends by being nice.

The Meanest Thing To Say By: Bill Cosby This book was great and cool. Little Bill's Dad shows him what to say when Little Bill would not say mean things. "So"! It made Michael sad. Little Bill wanted to be friends. Our classmate Kenyetta had to show her sister how to be nice. If you like Little Bill this is the book for you.

This book is excellent in assisting parents in dealing with situations that kids encounter at school and dealing with other children. I loved how the dad dealt with his son and related to his experience, by telling of the good ole' days! My boys want me to read them the Little Bill books over and over

The Little Bill series is Wonderful! These are the most popular books in my classroom library. My students enjoy the storylines, which are relevant to their lives and experiences. They are easy to read and brief. This makes them appealing to my students with reading troubles. They are divided into chapters and the illustrations resemble comic books. Because of this my older students with reading problems do not find them demeaning or babyish, as are most of the books they can read. Getting an eleven-year-old, who has expreinced frustration in reading, excited about books is very difficult. But the Little Bill series entices them. They beg me to let them read. They have made wonderful advances because they have been motivated by books they truly enjoy. My deepest thanks to the author and illustrator.
