This is the story of a bully named J.J., and how he manages to change his negative behavior to accept the person he once ridiculed.
The book offers great insight and straightforward treatment of an age-old problem.
An emphatic none!
The storyline is easy to follow for any child age 5 and above.
I highly recommend this book. Levy presents the topic in comprehensible language with a gratifying, realistic solution.
In Alley Oops, the issues of playground bullies and aggressive behavior are told from the bully's perspective.
J.J.'s personal journey from name-calling snit to an embracing friend of the overweight kid in school helps readers understand how unique we all are without sugar-coating the topic of bullying.

Read with 5-year-old child.
Buy. This is a book that can come in handy to address not only bullying but mean behavior in general.
