Karen and I are members of the Write Links Children's and Young Adult Writing Group. I won a copy of Stop the Bully recently and have enjoyed reading it.

Stop the Bully's characters are engaging and I couldn't help but like them because I hear many of their phrases and observe their reactions in my own children. Karen has realistically captured the voice and thoughts of older primary children. Stop the Bully weaves some great strategies for children dealing with a bullying situation through the story in a way that is accessible and not preachy.

I also admire the way Karen dealt with the bully in this story. He'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. This is a great starting point for discussion with children about the reasons why some people pick on others. Understanding the reason why bulling occurs is also empowering for children and may assist with strategies for dealing with bullies.

Ultimately, this story achieves it aim to create the belief in children that they can empower themselves and overcome difficult interpersonal situations. The strength of friendship, school and family support, also play an important role in Stop the Bully.

I recommend this book to parents and children who are dealing with bullying at school.

Brian’s story helps children discover and embrace their own power, even when they find themselves in the role of the victim. Chock full of pro-active anti-bullying strategies and insight, Stop the Bully is a story of adventure, compassion, and hope. Karen’s books are a great resource for school counsellors, social workers, and teachers.’ —

The problem with bullying is you never know who is experiencing it and how. This book would be a great gift for anyone because while it teaches strategies for those being bullied it also raises awareness for those who are in the position to support those being bullied....ie everyone. Karen is also sensitive to those who are bullies. A great all round helpful resource. A+

The moment Brian and his little sister Tara arrive at their new school, a bully strikes. Brian can hardly believe it. After all that happened in his old school, the new school was meant to be a fresh start. However, Cody Fletcher was bigger than the whole of Brian’s class and he had taken a dislike to Brian.

Luckily Brian is befriended by Amelia, and Pete. Amelia has had her share of bullying too, but she decided to learn how to defend herself by taking up Tae Kwon Do. Pete is just an all-round nice kid, who sticks up for Brian when he can. Brian learns that there is a big race on in a few weeks and everyone can compete, as long as they have running shoes and a permission slip.

Brian asks his mum, but since they moved away from Brian and Tara’s dad, money was tight. In order to keep the bullying from his thoughts, Brian begins to train for the big race and Amelia does her best to teach Brian how to defend himself.

Nothing seems to work, as Cody finds ways to bully Brian regardless. That is until the day their teacher Miss Bliss, suggests that everyone join a group for Friday club. Pete suggests they start a Stop The Bullying Friday club, and guess who joins the club. Amelia, Brian and Cody.
Brian can’t believe that a bully would join an anti-bullying club, but then again, Brian has a secret of his own. Each group must present their progress at the end of term right after the big race. Brian, Amelia and Pete come up with some strategies, while Cody remains disinterested.
The day of the big race comes, and Brian’s mum surprises him with new shoes and a signed permission slip. While Brian is on the race, he hears his sister Tara scream and when he rounds the corner he sees Cody, pulling on Tara’s pigtails.
Brian finally finds his courage.
