Darren is a bully. He is big! He picks on the narrator, taunts him endlessly into fights to prove his point. He is a crowd pleaser, attention seeker, fears challenges and deos not like to lose. The narrator tries his best to contalin himself.This one time, he beats him in a race on sports day. Daren is furious and wants revenge. The narrator comes up with an idea, a smart one. He lives on the farm and he knows agentle giant,'Olly' the Bull but Daren does not know that.
You do not have to beat the

A boy comes up with an interesting way of dealing with the bully he's so terrified of: he challenges him to prove he's brave by leading a bull around by the horns.

Just to make the point, he does it first. But there's one thing he doesn't know: Olly, the bull that is gentle as a lamb, is in the barn and there's another bull out in the field.

In this day when there's a surfeit of books about bullying, this is sufficiently different to be interesting.

A simple book about bullying which could be useful for a child dealing with it although the solution would be hard for most children to re-create. Interesting it did happen to the author.
