Red (a book about bullying)

Red is a good picture book about the issue of bullying and should spark good discussions - although it would have been better if the girl who started the teasing had been brave enough to be the first to stand up for her friend when teasing turned into bullying. The illustrations by Flemish author Jan De Kinder were created using pencil, charcoal, ink, aquarelle (watercolor), acrylic and collage (bits of newspaper in the tree leaves); and red, obviously, is a predominate color.

Originally published in Belgium, the English translation of this book is by Laura Watkinson under the Flemish Literature Fund.
