In No Treats for Bullies! by Patricia A. Brill, PhD, poor little Porsche Bella is afraid to go to the park and play with her friends. She is being bullied by a bigger dog and doesn’t know what to do. Luckily, her friend, Turbo, has the answer, as he was once a bully himself and realized how wrong that was when he found his forever home. Porsche Bella decides to take Turbo's advice and nervously goes to the park, where she discovers that the bully needs her help. Will the bullying dog stop his naughty ways? This delightful book will explore the negative and damaging consequences of bullying others. As parents read this book with their children, they can discuss the problem of bullying and how it makes the other person feel. This book will entertain young readers while also teaching them excellent values.

No Treats for Bullies! is a simple but thought-provoking story that is a perfect bedtime read for youngsters and their parents. It has a great message behind the story, which is that you should not be cruel to others, and that words can hurt deeply. I loved the introduction by Turbo. The illustrations were perfect for the story and could be used by parents as an opening to discuss how bullying affects others. A poignant story that encourages children to speak out if they are the victim of bullying. I love the character of Porsche Bella; she is a victim that finds the courage to face her bully, and then triumphs. This book will teach children to show kindness and tolerance to others, but to always ask for help if they need it. No Treats for Bullies! would make a perfect addition to a school library.
