Cody and Quinn are the best of friends. It's no big deal to Cody that Quinn is a girl. But it's a big deal to Royce, the class bully who likes to sing "Cody and Quinn, sitting in a tree, K-I-S-S-I-N-G!" Cody loses his temper and gets angry at Quinn. Now his best friend won't talk to him. How can Cody make up with Quinn and solve his problem with Royce?From School Library Journal:
Grade 2-3?Larson's attempt to create a credible bully story falls short. Royce is making life miserable for Cody, especially when he begins to challenge Cody's friendship with Quinn, a female classmate. The tension mounts until Cody finally fights back, only to find out that the bully, too, has a vulnerable side. Royce would like to be accepted by the rest of the class, and the story ends with Cody helping him do just that. Although the second graders take on their own personalities as the story unfolds, their teacher hardly emerges at all, and doesn't express any kind of authority to curb Royce's disruptive behavior. While the children are in the foreground of the story, the apparent lack of discipline and structure within the school scenes dramatically weaken it. Joanna Cole's Bully Trouble (Random, 1989) and Laurie Lawlor's How to Survive Third Grade (Albert Whitman, 1988) are much better chapter books for young readers.?Cheryl Cufari, N. A.
