Bullies are mean. Bullies are scary. Bullies are a pain in the brain—and every child needs to know what to do when confronted by one.
This book blends humour with serious, practical suggestions for coping with bullies.
Trevor Romain reassures kids that they're not alone and it's not their fault if a bully decides to pick on them. He explains that some people are bullies and describes realistic ways to become "Bully-Proof," stop bullies from hurting others, and get help in dangerous situations.
And if bullies happen to read this book, they'll find ideas they can use to get along with others and feel good about themselves—without making other people miserable.
