In a nutshell: thought-provoking story about bullying

Interest Age 8+  Reading Age 8 |  Everybody knows what they think about bullies, but this story might make them think again.  Jason Banks is king of the school, not because he’s clever or popular but because he’s a bully and everyone is afraid of him.  Then a new girl joins the class.  Millie is small and pale, and doesn’t seem to be scared of anything.  She knows a way to give Jason a taste of his own medicine but she knows too what he really needs to change.  This funny, clever and entertaining story will get readers thinking and talking.
