Bully by Laura Vaccaro Seeger


Bully by Laura Vaccaro Seeger

Bull doesn't have a kind word for any of his friends. When the other animals ask him to play, he responds in the way he's been taught: Chicken! Slow Coach! You stink! Until, that is, one of his friends decides to stand up to him, and makes him realise what a bully he's become...Laura Vaccaro Seeger's bold, graphic artwork, along with her spare but powerful words, make for a tender, hilarious, and thoughtful tale.


A great way to encourage children to explore what bullying means. Reading Zone A range of emotions in its sparse text that children may well relate to. EYE Characteristically impeccable design. A conversation starter about bullying. Kirkus Reviews Deceptively simple. The little bull is a sympathetic character throughout. New York Times This title packs a punch. Laura Vaccaro Seeger signals her intent to tackle an ugly subject, carefully calibrating it for the very youngest. The Washington Post
