The Bully from the Black Lagoon
We bought through the Scholastic Reading Club at our school. Click HERE to check it out. Does your school have one? What books have you bought your kid(s)?
Hubie has heard there’s a new kid in school. His name is Butch Pounder, and he is rumored to be a mean bully! Did Butch really beat up the football team and eat the teacher’s pet at his last school?
Hubie thinks he’ll end up in the nurse’s office, when he finally runs into Butch. But, of course, Hubie’s imagination has run away from him again! All Butch wants is a new friend to show him around school, and Hubie is just who he needed!
He thinks the new kid is going to beat him up, eat him, and throw him away. He is scared of the bully. Bullies are not nice, but he’s not a bully. He’s a good guy and wants to be friends. I’m nice to everyone and like to make friends.
Very cute book about a boy who misunderstands what he hears about the new kid or hears rumors. Hubie works himself into a frenzy thinking of horrific and devastating things the bully can do to him. In the end, the new kid is nothing like what he heard he would be…he’s jut a new kid looking to make friends.
Teaches a great lesson…never judge someone before you meet them.
