In Ed­die the Bully, everyone knows that Ed­die is mean. The chil­dren treat him with fear, and the teach­ers are frus­trated with him. When a new girl joins the class, she un­know­ingly of­fers Ed­die her friend­ship. Ed­die quickly re­al­izes that be­ing nice feels good. For chil­dren ages four to eight, this book demon­strates that bul­lies are of­ten an­gry and afraid, and that some­times an of­fer of friend­ship can change be­hav­ior. Il­lus­tra­tions of an­thro­po­mor­phic animals are very well done and show dif­fer­ences among chil­dren with­out judgment.
