Synopsis

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.

Reviews

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 *
