Product Description

Thomas hates being ignored, but when his attempts to impress everyone don't make him any friends, he decides to be a bully instead. There's just one problem: he makes a terrible bully. A toadilly terrible one, in fact.
It turns out that there's an even bigger bully around, and Thomas discovers what it feels like to be the one bullied. But a bit of teamwork helps him outwit the bully and makes a new friend. And being a friend, Thomas finds, is far more fun than being a bully.

Editorial Reviews

Booklist
"Textured, earth-toned acrylic illustrations lend the toads and their landscape a worn-in, comfortable feel and leave plenty of space for the succinct text. A nice life lesson for bullies and bullied alike."
