Eddy The Teddy Stands Up To Bullying by H. B. Scribbles tackles the topic of bullying in a very interesting and engaging way. The story is not only about bullying but also about friendship and it is heartwarming to see Chirp-Chirp, Monk the Monkey, Rookie the Turtle, and Eddy the Teddy trying to make Bad Boy Billy change his ways and being ready to be his friends all over again once he decides to change. The illustrations by the author are lively and they give clarity to the concept and make the characters and the scenes palpable to young readers. It is a good story for educators, tutors, and parents to read aloud to children and help them understand bullying is not good and it never pays. The concept is explained in an entertaining way through the story of Bad Boy Billy.
