This chapter book for early readers is a fun and exciting story that also teaches an important lesson.
Ethan Blecher Braves a Bully by Chris Pederson shows Ethan being tormented by Blake the bully and his gang no matter where he goes. Even at camp during Spring Break, Blake is there.
At last, when Blake is in serious danger, Ethan has the opportunity to get even.
But, instead, he helps his enemy.
What do you think happens as a result?
I won't give away details of the plot, but I will say the book teaches an important lesson about forgiveness and turning the other cheek without being preachy-teachy at all.
Ethan Blecher Braves a Bully is a fun read, and the illustrations by Kate Jeong add to the enjoyment.
