Leslie Williamsabout this book: Every schoolyard has its bully, and each child that's different is a target. Campuses today are bully free zones, with kids urged to stand up and be heard.
But what if the bully is a dragon? In "The Story About the Dragon," a winged, reptilian menace has his whole neighborhood hiding livestock and boarding up windows. Most kids won't have to face down a tormentor that breathes fire and eats sheep, but the problem is the same: how to stand up for yourself and not get scorched.
As the book's pages turn, cartoons reveal that a bully can be beaten without fists, firepower, or mutant abilities, and that heroes/heroines don't always wear spandex and capes.
This book is for kids grades prekindergarten through first that find themselves picked on, and us adults who remember being a victim.
The drawings were inspired by Cartoons like "Peanuts" and "The Wizard of Id," as well as the simple art of Munro Leaf's books, "Manners Can Be Fun" and "Safety Can Be Fun."
