Editorial Reviews

"Interesting and varied presentations of the facts about bullying will make this a terrific vehicle for prompting discussion."


As seen in the June 2004 issue of Canadian Living


"Slavens presents everything needed to start great discussions about bullying in class, in counseling groups, with individuals, and with youth at home... [We] applaud not only the accessible, basic information and reader-friendly text, but also the illustrations and overall presentation that make this brief book a valuable tool for everyone. All adults should read it and thank the author for this excellent resource."
