TJ Zaps the One-Upper...

TJ Zaps the One-Upper: Stopping One-Upping and Cell Phone Bullying
By Lisa Mullarkey, Illustrated by Gary LaCoste
Minneapolis, MN: Magic Wagon, 2013

This is a story about a 4th grade boy named TJ who is bullied by someone who he believed to be his friend- Danny. The story is all about what TJ does to stop Danny from one-upping and cell phone bullying. The author uses simple terminology and easy to understand phrasing to make the story fun and enjoyable for everyone. The illustrations are simple yet eye-catching and tell the story well. I enjoyed this book and would recommend it for children who are entering into the middle grades. It would be a good tool to use to help them understand bullying, its effects, and how to take action against bullying.
