Billy the Bully: From the AddyBee123 Book Collection by Sharon Linen-Fordham and 1 more reflected the world of bullied children. It resolved around Addy and Billy. Billy has been bullying Addy for some time now and has made a mockery of her looks (but Addy is a beautiful kid physically for me). Addy's mother found out about this incident and would report Billy to the school authorities. Soon after, Billy had a terrible accident with her mother. How will Addy respond to someone that has bullied her all this while?
The author takes children into the world and mental state of bullies. We all have reasons why we act the way we do. This is the case concerning Billy. What I loved most about this book was the lesson the character of Addy portrayed. You wouldn't believe what this pretty kid did in response to the news she heard.
All the scenarios were portrayed with good pictures as illustrations. I believe the author wasn't trying to create a protagonist and antagonist scenario in the book. The author was only trying to develop a mindset of unity between kids. Most kids are going through tough times in their homes. You wouldn't believe the effect of all these issues on these kids when they meet their fellow kids in school.
Sincerely, I have not found any negative features in this book. The execution was perfect. Also, there were no errors. Hence, I can confidently say that the book was exceptionally well-edited. The author did well by including a didactic epilogue at the end of the book.
I will rate this book 4 out of 4 stars because the author did an excellent job of teaching such lessons in this book for children. The book will suit those children in the neighborhood who will always come back home with tears in their eyes because of bullying. I assure you, baby girl, you will be comforted in the character of Addy in this book. She could be your friend.
