Jake Drake has always been a bully magnet. Ever since nursery school, bigger kids have been giving him tons of trouble. When Link Baxter and his family move in down the street, and Link joins Jake's class in school, Jake finds out right away that he's not just a bully--he's a Superbully! Link makes fun of Drake at every available opportunity and even gets Drake sent to the principle's office. What can Jake do to stop these attacks? Andrew Clements' tale is a great first chapter book for children, and its valuable lessons speak to anyone who has ever been targeted by a classmate. Johnny Heller's honest narration ensures a good listen.

"Together Clements and Heller offer workable suggestions to handle a school bully. Jake Drake is a little guy who is used to being a "bully magnet." When he turns to his little sister, she gives him advice, which he tries, and, eventually, the bully backs off. Johnny Heller is amazing at sounding like kids of all ages. Furthermore, his wonderful recreation of teachers and parents enhances an already lively story. We join Jake and his tormenter, Link, as their relationship evolves. All young people could benefit from this tale. S.G.B. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine"
