He’s Not Just Teasing:  A Book About the Difference Between Teasing and Bullying


Jennifer Licate

ISBN:  978-1944882631

A tale about the fragile friendships of boys and their willingness to stand up for others

Malcolm has a problem. And his name is Joe.

Malcolm is often the target of good-natured ribbing because he’s an excitable scatterbrain. Malcolm knows the jokes and laughs at his expense are all in good fun and sometimes even teach him a lesson. But the snark coming from Joe isn’t funny.

Joe taunts and bullies Malcolm. When he attacks, Malcolm’s friends do nothing. They are silent bystanders, and Malcolm is left to wonder why. Can he find the courage to ask them for help, or will Malcolm have to stand up for himself?

He’s Not Just Teasing! is a tale about bullying, the fragile friendships of boys, the willingness to stand up for others and the power of kindness.
