The afternoon was ruined. Wil was lying on her bed looking out the window. Snow was falling again. She should be outside with her friends right now. But because of Bud she was stuck in her room.
My take on it : This book is a story which includes characters who face a bully, make judgements without facts, and learn to get along together. The black and white illustrations are simple yet add some dimension to the story though the story-line stands alone. The characters are likeable and the theme is a common one amoung peers- learning to trust, get along, and compomise. Young readers will enjoy the story and leave with the satisfaction that all is not what it seems. I give the story a thumbs up.
