Book Review


I guess you could say this book caught my attention for obvious reasons.  I teach so many different styles of dodge ball games to my campers/students but I’m always looking for something new.  During my research looking for new games,  I came across this book by accident and decided to take a closer look  It’s much more than just a book about dodge ball.  I thought I would find some new dodge ball games, but instead I found so much more.  I encourage my campers to read this book and plan add this to the health curriculum with my 2nd-5th grade students.  We touch on bullying, but I know this book will spark up good conversations with the children.  This will create more awareness and learning than the previous curriculum.


I love what this book teaches.  It’s a sad but true reality that kids go thru in school.  Bullies and strategies on how to handle them.  This book uses imagination, strategies, friendships and a good vs evil idea but made for children.


It’s possible that it may be easier to read for kids that haven’t been bullied, but I think kids that have been bullied will find the book useful and encouraging.


Book Details


  • The Struggle of a boy moving to a new town and trying to fit in.


  • Dealing with bullies.


  • Finding new friends.


  • Of course dodge ball games.


  • Adventures and Imaginations in this book that kids will relate to.


I’d like to quote a few lines, that will give you an idea of how kids can relate to this book.


  • “Why did we have to move?”


  • “What if my locker doesn’t Open?”


  • “I stink at sports, what if they find out?”


  • “I stink at baseball, football and dodgeball! I stink at everything!”


This book touches on real life trials and tribulations that kids go thru, but in a way kids can relate.  My soon to be 4th grader loved it!
