"No Bullies Allowed: Zoey's Adventures" by Linda K. Lee and Mary Ting is about how Mean Jean, a girl bully, caused fear and humiliation in Abby and how the victim's friends rallied on her behalf to help and support her. Mean Jean would call Abby names, insult her, and even make her give her things. Abby was helplessly intimidated until her friends stood up to Mean Jean, causing her to cower but not stop the tormenting. Ultimately, Abby's friends reported the situation to their teacher, who told them what a bullying was, why children behave like that, and how to handle being on the receiving end of it. She further supported their efforts by saying she was going to get the principal involved in the matter. The friends then made a poster with "No Bullies Allowed" for all to see at an awards assembly, and then a movie on bullying was shown that made the anti-bullying messages even clearer.
This book would be an ideal read as part of an anti-bullying drive in elementary schools. The realistic story line details not only how the bully behaves, but how her actions and words cause her victim to feel ashamed and afraid and how her friends are affected. It is a great book that delivers an educational message that should help many students who will undoubtedly and unfortunately experience being on the receiving end of bullying. The book may even prevent a bully in the making or cause another to stop.
