BUD and the Bully

by L.B. Hamilton

Tye has a problem. A bully named Alex and his friend Chris pick on him, tease him and generally make his school life miserable. Tye’s brother tells him the way to deal with bullies is to punch them. Tye’s sister thinks he should just hide and try to be invisible whenever Alex is around. But Back Up Dog, a super pup in training, has a better idea. He sees that Tye’s passive behaviors make him a target for bullies and teaches Tye to stand up straight, look the bully in the eye, and speak with a strong voice. Tye is soon able to do that and more! He finds that he can turn a bullying situation around by asking questions, pretending to agree and giving compliments. And, most importantly, Tye learns that reporting bullying is vital—adults can only help if they know what is going on.
