Publisher's Summary

Bradley Chalkers IS the oldest kid in the fifth grade. He tells enormous lies. He picks fights with girls. No one likes him - except Carla, the new school counselor. She thinks Bradley is sensitive and generous, and knows that Bradley could change, if only he weren’t afraid to try. But when you feel like the most-hated kid in the whole school, believing in yourself can be the hardest thing in the world....

Great story of friendship and self esteem

Realistic story and easily identifiable emotions and situations for kids. I disliked the voices you can hear in the background of the recording.

We listened to this on a car trip and had a great conversation about the many themes in this book. So well written and read. Hope every family will read and discuss the importance of the topics covered in the book.

How it's just you

Bradley may have seem like that he couldn't make through school because of his reputation but he had help.

A gift from the heart

Absolutely brilliant story about boys and girls, unwritren rules and real life in primary school. Heart warming, funny and sad moments all make the story more true to life. Lovable characters you can relate to. A gift from the heart.

A book about making friends

It was so good because a boy at the begining had no friends and as the book went on he made friends and lost friends. In the end he made a group of friends that loved him.
