A core component of the CirclePoint Bullying Prevention Program (circlepointprogram.org), this guide teaches students in grades 3-6 how to prevent and stop bullying on their own or with adult help. Ostensibly written by the two title characters, the guide covers bullying basics, ways to get bullying to stop (for both targets and bystanders), what to do if you are being bullied, and how to get an adult to help the right way. The two title characters explain and demonstrate the concepts, providing students with easy-to-follow examples they can apply to their own bullying problems. The guide also contains a special section for students in grades K-2, designed to be read with an adult, which covers friendship basics and prepares students for the aggression they will face in the upper grades. The comic is designed to appeal to boys and girls and covers both dominance and relational aggression. Note: black and white interior illustrations.

Ari Magnusson is a bullying prevention researcher and writer who has spent the past two years working with veteran educators in the Boston Public School district to create the CirclePoint Bullying Prevention Program, a comprehensive program based on whole community empowerment. His middle grade novel, Bitopia, about bullied children, was named one of the best books of 2012 by Kirkus Reviews. That novel, and a subsequent non-fiction empowerment guide, have been used in schools in 32 states.Review:
"An empowering comic book focuses on how to prevent and deal with bullying. . . Appealing, concrete, and easy-to-follow suggestions for kids--and adults--in dealing with challenging relationships." - Kirkus Reviews
"A very well designed book to help youth learn bullying prevention strategies through a decision-making process as they go through the book." - Ming Sun, MPH, MCHES, Health Educator, Massachusetts General Hospital Community Health Associates
"[The book] enabled me to provide such important information to my students in a way that was engaging and fun for them." - Tara Williams, MA/CAGS, School Psychologist, Woburn Public Schools
"This is a fantastic book. . . . Instead of a novel with a bullying theme, this is a comic style book which. . . [discusses] bullying and how it impacts others. . . . While it is clearly written for the American education system, there is no reason why it cannot be used in schools across the world." - Miss T. David, primary school teacher, St. Joseph's Primary School, Essex, England
"The book. . . is presented in such a systematic way that it can almost be entitled "The Dictionary of Bullying." At the end of the book is extra information for adults and parents confronted with the bullying of those in their care, and how they can use this book in the best possible way to help them." - R.R. Howroar
