Any story from the black lagoon series should automatically be used in a classroom around the beginning of the year. From principles, to janitors they make every school potion a little less scary for children. In this particular book a new student is being introduced to the classroom and rumor has it that he was kicked out of his old school. This automatically gets readers interested in what amazing illustration will Jared Lee give us next? He dose not disappoint with a giant pink monster that towers over the res of the students. But with every book in this series it has a happy ending for all. This book would be a great lesson on not just bullying, but about spreading rumors, and the harm that It can do especially to new students. ( )

In my opinion, this book is a great book to read in the beginning of the school year. The moral of this story is for students to understand why bullying is so bad, and to keep an open mind. It is from the perspective of Hubie, who is a student at the school. By having it in the perspective of Hubie, it gives a real feel of how students feel about a new student coming in. He is nervous about the new student coming because of all the mean things he can possibly do to the students. By Hubie thinking he is a bully, he feels he will have to learn how to run fast away from him, put a layer of armor on to school, go to the nurses office throughout the day, etc. The book teaches students to keep an open mind because in the end, the bully he thought the new student would be, really isn't a bully at all. The characters in the book are well-developed and descriptive. The bully, is well described throughout the entire story. The story creates fear of him in a humorous way. The illustrations are colorful which create a better understanding of what Hubie expects from the bully. On the page with the students in the nurse, it is very funny because of all the students in the nurses office and the captions that follow. ( )
