In this novel an individual is hurting others. Fear is a factor. Fun was put on hold. A new kid changes things and life gets better. This is a light story about bullying aimed at primary children. It is colourful and easy to read. Good reading.

As an elementary teacher, I'm always looking for resources for different topics, such as bullying. This book opens the door for lots of discussion on bullying. It will be in my "top shelf" resources.

What makes a classic? Read "The Recess Queen" and you'll recognize it instantly. Alexis O'Neill's tale of a spunky heroine, a legendary bully, a playground filled with astounded children will please young and not so young readers for many years. Rollicking words keep a perfect beat in time with innovative book design and captivating mixed media illustrations. I expect this one will not stay on my classroom library shelf for long. There will be too many eager readers vying for a chance to read aloud. Who knew that reading could be so much fun? Who knows what a scary place a playground could be? Ask your child. She knows. It's all in "The Recess Queen."

This beautifully written and illustrated story uses inventive language and adorable images to deal with the age-old problem of bullies. Instead of being preachy, the author solves the problem of the playground bully with charm and wit. This story is a true example of kid-appropriate problem solving. Parents, teachers and young readers will fall in love with the characters. This book is so enchanting; it will easily appeal to readers from ages 2-10. A must-have for school libraries and counseling offices. In fact, every elementary school principal should have a copy!!

Provides a way to show aggressive and controlling behaviours in children with compassion and humour. Presented in a way that kids can take in the message.

I recently read this book to a first grade class. The children loved the fabulous illustrations and the fun rhyming language in the story. Of the 4 books I read the girls seemed to all prefer The Recess Queen. I am going to look up other books by both the author and illustrator. They both have great style.

My kids like this book, I think it is ok! It is the illustrations that really make it. As for sending a message about bullying....it isn't crystal clear!It's nice enough, my kids like it and that is what matters!Recommended for 4-7 year olds.

Ms. O'Neill has taken on the (very current) topic of school yard bullies in a very good way. This book should be a hit with any parent whose children are in the early school years.
