Bully doesn't have a kind word for any of his friends. When the other animals ask him to play, he responds in the way he's been taught:

Chicken! Slow poke! You stink!

Laura Vaccaro Seeger's bold, graphic artwork, along with her spare but powerful words, make for a tender, hilarious, and thoughtful tale.

Praise for 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
