Scholastic, 2013. ISBN 9780545480260.
(Age: 7+) School Bully Beware is the story of twins, Lottie and Mia. It's a school day and there is a new boy at school. His name is Max and he seems to be a bully. The girls and their friends aren't sure what to do, especially when Max kicks their ball away. The cute twist in this story is the twins have secret super powers and use their powers to get the ball back. Is Max really a bully or just a new kid trying to fit in?
School Bully Beware is a Scholastic Reader aimed at a Year 2 reading level. The easier text and bright pictures will be appealing to girls aged 7+. The story would also be good to use as a class text, to help children discuss acceptable behaviour, help discuss why children choose to act in different ways and help understand the structure of a simple narrative.
