"Even the very small will understand."
Guardian||"Thought provoking, perceptive, picture book looking at a bully and his victim."
Primary Times||"Minimal text allied to pictures with maximum impact make this a perfect book for the emerging reader."
The Bookseller||"A clever tale that will allow children to understand what makes a bully."
The Teacher||"A deceptively simple, funny (yet serious) book about bullying and self-esteem... Each page stands as a little gem in its own right."
