Is your child a bully, a victim or a bystander?
There is big trouble at school, and Ellie Elephant knows there is only one friend who can help bring peace: Splunkey. After she says her name aloud and blinks three times, Splunkey magically appears and is ready to help!
Big Bully Holly Howler is a new student who shoves kids to be first in the lunch line and snatches things from other students—all without the teacher’s knowledge. It seems there is nothing anyone can do to stop Holly—until Splunkey encourages Ellie and her best friend, Eli, to look at Holly in an entirely new way. In this delightful children’s tale, youngsters learn creative ways to cope with bullies through help from a peace-loving detective.
“What an evocative, sensitive and creative story… This book is needed in every library, classroom and home… The author’s marvelous imagination and originality in illustrating and writing teach all of us the answer to the question—bully, victim or bystander?”
