Mullarkey, Lisa. TJ Zaps the One-Upper: Stopping One-Upping and Cell Phone Bullying. Magic Wagon-ABDO Publishing. 2013. ISBN: 9781616419066.
This fictional story is about a boy (T.J.) who is constantly getting one-upped by his best friend, Danny. Danny starts to bully T.J. and he has to decide how to handle Danny. Lisa Mullarkey write in the first person narrative. The bullying terms are bold faced and defined in the back of the book. The illustrations are sporatic throughout the book. They are simplistic and in black and white. I liked this book. It gave a good representation of what bullying looks like and how kids can help each other in a fun and entertaining way. This book would be good for ages 9-12 (3rd-5th grade).
