Read full description of the books:
I wish I still had my childhood copy. But at least my library had an original, with Grossman's art! What a trip down memory lane. Five stars because I loved it as a child and appreciate it even more now. It's not so much a story about a bully as it is about compassion, and honor, and growing up. But all that's pretty much behind the scenes of the humor and drama. Just about the only thing that dates this is the prices. The mom does outright encourage the boy to watch TV, but some moms do, you gotta admit.
