A wonderful story with an important message
My daughter enjoyed this book immensely as did her friends. I found it to be very realistic, believable and would recommend it highly. I must say that the review seems slightly critical in the sense that the reviewer purports to be an expert on playground behavior when in fact, negative encounters vary with different individuals. As far as the 'one bomb' review for scariness, this particular negative encounter is a common one that all children must learn to navigate.
