Veggie Bunnie, Carb Monkey and his Uncle Bear are all friends and we learn more about their friendship in this book, “Veggie’s Bully.” There seems to be a bully that keeps bothering Veggie, and Carb Monkey wants Veggie to do something to get even with the bully named Piggie. Piggie was mean, and said ugly things to Veggie, hurting her feeling, making her cry. But each time Carb Monkey suggested things for Veggie to do to get back at Piggie, Uncle Bear would keep reminding Veggie to keep doing what she wanted to do, and not give up, no matter what Piggie said to her.

This is a wonderful book that teaches a valuable lesson to children, and especially children with a low self esteem. "Veggie’s Bully" will encourage children to ignore those who mistreat them. Uncle Bear had some wonderful advice throughout the book as he tried to calm Veggie and Carb. One bit of advice I like from Uncle Bear is: “It is ok to be angry when someone is mean when you play. It is not fair at all for Piggie to act that way. There might not be a reason for the way that he may act. But if you let it make you different that is no good. That’s a fact.” And Uncle Bear is full of advice like this throughout this book. I really like the interaction between the characters in this book because it helps children to see the difference between how they may react to those who say things to hurt and cut people down. This is a book I thoroughly enjoyed and I recommend it to anyone who has small children. The bully situation has always been and always will be, and having a book like this one will surely help children love themselves more and have more confidence in what they do. And I can’t leave out the illustrations; they are awesome and wonderful and fit so well with the story. The vivid colors and adorable people will capture your children’s hearts and keep them choosing this book over and over.
