BL Gray Wins District UIL Meet
Rapid Review by Darvin Koenig, SNJH Librarian
One by Kathryn Otoshi
Kathryn Otoshi has written a very clever book about bullying. The characters are all colors. Red is the bully who likes to pick on Blue. The other colors all like blue, but none of them do anything to stop Red. Finally, a new character arrives who knows how to handle Red, and he teaches the other colors how to take a stand against bullies.
