Mikey lies awake in bed at night because he is worried about what is going to happen in school the next day. Mikey's frustration grows and he almost makes a wrong decision, because he listens to a friend. Finally, Mikey learns that his teacher, Mr. Jones, can do more than teach math.
This was a great children's book letting kids know about bullying and how to deal with it. It explains how fighting and running away only adds fuel to the flames and that you should advise a trusted adult of your situation.

I loved that this was a story geared towards a smaller childs point of view because bullying needs to be identified and "stomped out" at an earlier age before it becomes a bigger problem.
