‘Ms Tyrrell drew me into Brian’s plight from the get go. The emotions Brian goes through were right on par with what kids feel when they are bullied. Helpless, hopeless, with no end in sight … Kids will really identify with Brian and his friends plight and the ways that they overcome the bullying, strategies that every classroom should adopt. An engaging and informative read’ — Creative Kids Tales: Julie Grasso
‘STOP the Bully teaches kids how to overcome bullying. Chock filled with assertive solutions in an action-packed adventure kids will love. The thought provoking twist at the end was completely unexpected. 5 stars!’ — Nolan Reed: University student
‘Stop the Bully’s characters are engaging … The Bully’s not painted as a ‘bad to the core’ person, but rather as someone who may have issues of their own that need to be dealt with… The strength of friendship, school and family support, also play an important role in Stop the Bully. —Melanie Hill: Author
‘There should be more books like this! Books on bullying only deal with one side of the story, but Karen’s book deals with both. I believe it is a very useful resource for primary school children and what the heck; it is a fun book to read.’– Denise Covey: Author
‘Fun & heart-warming: Shows boys and girls awareness of both sides of bullying. This book is an important tool for any child, teacher & parent.’ —Michelle Dennis: Author
