In this sensitively told story, a little boy is feeling sad because every day he has to face a bully. But the little boy also has friends. A frog, a cat, a rabbit, a cow, and other animal friends insist on helping him, even after he tells them: "There's nothing you can do for me/ There's nothing you can say." Fortunately, he is mistaken, because the next time the bully approaches, they all join with him and shout, "LEAVE HIM ALONE!" And it works! The bully turns around and goes away. Author Kes Gray's gently clever use of rhyming verse gives a difficult subject a wonderfully light touch. Large color illustrations on every page capture the spirit of a story that will have special meaning for many little boys and girls.

Nice way to show the side of how bullying affects the person as well as what bystanders can do to help.

Also it isn't "preachy" or text book like but rather a childrens story.

I also found it was good to teach my son more ways emotions happen in our lives and how we react differently to different situations. As he is 3 I look for ways to get him to look at characters facial expressions and body language and am trying to teach him to have empathy and put yourself in someone else's shoes (see things from their view) and this is a great book even just for that side of it.

Of course bullying is always a very important topic.
