The book is laid out in a way that's attractive. I purchased this to read with my Yr3 son and unlike "Bullies Bigmouths and so-called friends" by J.Alexander, I feel this book is very accessible to KS1 school children also without the need for editing by parents (Bullies Bigmouths aimed more at teens).
I'm so impressed by Confessions of a Former Bully that I will be giving a copy to my child's teacher as they will be covering the topic next half term.
