Watch this video for BULLY, the new picture book by Laura Vaccaro Seeger
Author and illustrator Laura Vaccaro Seeger discusses hew new book, Bully.
“What’s lovely about ‘Bully’ is that the little bull is a sympathetic character throughout. Having shown us the reason for his anger, Seeger offers children a way to root for him.”--The New York Times
"For a book containing only 18 words (22 if you count the duplicates), this title packs a punch, or perhaps a pat on the shoulder. Beginning with the stop-sign-red cover sporting an angry brown bull, author-illustrator Laura Vaccaro Seeger signals her intent to tackle an ugly subject, carefully calibrating it for the very youngest."--The Washington Post
"Intelligently conceived and beautifully executed, this picture book is visually and verbally pared down to essentials, making it accessible to a wide age range. Yet for all its simplicity, this story opens up a number of complex issues for discussion." -- Booklist, starred review
"Seeger’s pages pop with action, and the lesson couldn’t be clearer."-- Publishers Weekly, starred review
