How will Lauren cope with the new girl in her class who is bullying her? In this easy-to-read early chapter book, Lauren is thrilled to begin Grade 3 in her favourite teacher's class, and with her best friend. But also in the class is Bethany, a newcomer to the school - and a bully. As Lauren is subjected to a series of lunchtime and classroom challenges, she learns how to deal with her nemesis. Kids will relate to the familiar situations depicted in the story — being at a new school, making new friends, collaborating on a school project, and bullying.

Though the topic of bullying is a serious one, the upbeat text and fresh black-and-white illustrations add humour and lighten the tone of the book. How To Tame a Bully ties into Canadian curriculum (social studies, science, and health and life strands), and teaches children essential social skills.
