I have a soft spot for books that speak to bullying in schools…and among kids in general. This powerful little story by my friend Donna Dillon has just undergone a makeover courtesy of the lovely Kim Mutch Emerson and the folks at MKSP. I’m excited to see this story get a little more attention and…wait for it…MSKP is putting out the sequel, as well. Powerful stuff, adding one more voice to the fight.
School has begun and with it anticipation, hope, trials, successes and failures. Unfortunately what also comes when school is in session are children struggling with their social skills. Some will learn to respect, accept, understand and enjoy their peers, and others will act out hostilities they might be witnessing at home, or that might be bottled up inside from their own fears and anxieties.
With so much talk about bullying these days you’d think America would see a decrease. Not so. Although there have been an increase of authors that have addressed the subject. Master Koda Select Publishing has a few of those novels and memoirs available.

Donna is very passionate to do what she can…
