Bailey was a big bully.  He was just plain mean.  He splashed people with his bike and pushed his way to the front of the line.  The kids were all afraid of Bailey.  He made them play games his way.  They had to listen to his stories.  When they complained to the grown ups at school, they were told to just ignore him.  That was the hardest thing of all to do.  When a new kid arrives at school, things change.  Can one person change the behavior of a bully?  What do you think he might do?  To find out, read BAILEY THE BIG BULLY by Lizi Boyd.
