NZ Writer
Glenn Wood
The Bully Chip
Walker Books    2013   $18.99pb   261pages
ISBN 978 1 9219 7764 0

Themes: Bullying/ Funny stories/ High school life/ Sequels

Callum in his up market wheelchair and his no nonsense friend Sophie plus Jinx are being targeted by two particularly nasty bullies who have arrived at school. However, they have picked on the wrong people and in spite of tactics that might have totally floored less strong characters, Callum, Sophie and Jinx end on a note of triumph. The story (like its predecessor, The Brain Sucker 2012 ISBN 978 1 9219 7763 3) is written in the sort of language that today’s younger readers relate to and would make a satisfying read aloud for 9 to 11 year olds.

Years 5–8/ Ages 9-12
