Is it any good?

PROFESSOR GARFIELD CYBERBULLYING teaches kids the basics about how to deal with cyberbullies via a traditional comic strip that sees Nermal getting bullied for posting a dancing video in an online competition. Through the story, kids learn to alert adults when they suspect a problem, never to reply to bully emails or messages, and to block strangers and change usernames and passwords at the first sign of trouble. They're also quizzed on what they've learned via a short interactive test at the end of the strip. It's a good introduction to one of the problems kids are sure to run into as they begin to venture online. Plus, some of the advice helps teach kids what constitutes bullying behavior, which will hopefully make children think twice before posting mean messages or revealing someone else's secrets online.
