Robbie Zero, Super Girl Hero by Crystal Vaagen is a story that tackles the relevant topic of bullying effectively and reaches out to all those who have been bullied, insulted, degraded, ignored, or snubbed. The story revolves around Robbie, a girl who is made fun of by Tommy. He makes fun of her name Robbie Zero and pelts her with paper wads in the school bus. Robbie suffers silently and she does not talk about it to anybody. Often she cries herself to sleep. Things change when Robbie saves Tommy from a bad day.
The story addresses bullying, being bullied, and the bully, and I recommend this book to all kids. The concept is excellent as it teaches young readers to stand up for what they want and how they want to be treated. It's a good bedtime storybook for children and many of them will be able to relate to Robbie's experiences. The story can also be used for interactive sessions in classrooms and school libraries. Robbie's character transformation, from that of a meek, scared girl to that of a strong and confident one, is commendable. The illustrations also complement the author's concept and words beautifully, and they also give pace and movement to the scenes and the plot. The story is well crafted and Robbie's transformation will remain in the hearts of all young readers. An excellent story with a great concept.
