Here's what I take from them in regards to my daughter. 1. No adult intervenes and stands up for these kids, no skill is taught for dealing with this bully, the bully doesn't seem to have any consequence other than being told by the other kids to not be a bully. 2. In a strange twist, Billy is taken away in a spaceship by aliens. Close Encounters of the Teagan Kind Go on- click that link and take a few minutes to read that post from 2 years ago. Really- go ahead.
Did you come to the same conclusion I did? This bullying book... the bully being taken away by the alien in a possible helping role... Teagan building a nest on her bed for the aliens in case they come to our house and need help... Teagan being sad about the aliens leaving... Teagan wanting all of us to go into the alien spaceship together...
Teagan thought that being a bully would mean a ride on a spaceship, a visit from the aliens.
