Read in February, 2010

Read it as a read aloud while subbing as the school librarian. It was a great way to talk about bullying and perspective and dealing with deeper feelings that many kids just push aside and wonder why they get angry all the time. As other reviewers have said it was a very neatly packaged story with a happy ending bow on it but that doesn't stop it from sparking great class discussions.
