Shelby the Cat is not a typical cat. He is kind and caring and looks out for all those who are smaller than he is. He loves to read and tell stories. He makes friends with mice and birds and bugs. This makes the alley cats angry because Shelby makes them look bad. They try to force Shelby to be like them, but he refuses. Shelby knows who he is and what he wants to be and does not let anyone pressure him to be different. One thing that helps Shelby is that he decides ahead of time how he will act when faced with peer pressure. This story is about resisting negative peer pressure and can help to start discussions about how to handle the problem of bullying.
