Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "How can books help children deal with serious, complicated issues that younger elementary-school-age children may face in their daily lives? Author Ferguson makes a noble, if occasionally awkward, attempt to help with the Stand Up: Bullying Prevention series. The subject matter is heavy, the tone sometimes didactic, and the text quite dense for younger readers. How to Deal with an Adult Bully oddly applies the bullying buzzword to situations generally treated as abuse; this ambiguity might, in some adults' eyes, minimize dangerous situations. It may be hard to imagine some children picking up these books. At the same time, the books could be a good resource for adults to share with children who might potentially be affected by issues related to bullying.--Aronin, Miriam Copyright 2015 Booklist"
