Featured Book - A Bully in Monkeyville

A Bully in Monkeyville
Ari Mazor


A children's picture book. Teaching children to deal with BULLY incidents.
Fred the monkey is being bullied and is keeping it a SECRET --When Jason Brown moves to town he is lonely but does not know how to make friends. Instead he starts picking on Fred who is much smaller than him. Fred does not want to snitch and does not tell on Jason. But when Fred stops playing outside his friends figure out the reason. Fred's friends teach him that sometimes 'telling' is the right thing to do and even heroic because it protects everybody. The story of Fred and Jason is told in rhymes and is accompanied by beautiful illustrations that are sure to entertain.
Purchase the book so you may visit Monkeyville and meet Fred the monkey and his pals, Mighty Paul, Hairy Bill, Little Lizzy, Jodi, Ted, and Jason Brown.
Note to parents: A Bully in Monkeyville provides a great opportunity to discuss with your children the very pertinent and important subject of bullying.

About the author

 Ari Mazor is a high school senior who plans to attend university and earn the degrees that will enable him to pursue a career in engineering. One of his favorite pastimes is reading, a love he attributes to his early introduction to books. Ari hopes that his stories will attract young kids to the fabulous world of words and help them, as it helped him, develop a love for reading.

Review: 5 Star Review from author J Spina 

This is a lovely story that will help children learn how to problem solve and deal with bullies in a kind and forgiving manner. The author, Ari Mazor, is a talented young writer who understands the nuances of childhood behavior.

The illustrations are adorable and very well done. The characters, little monkeys, are sweet and interact well and the dialogue is carefully crafted in clever rhyme. Another wonderful children's book from MazorBooks which is a must have for all children.

I have read other MazorBooks and look forward to reading many more. Who says you have to be a child to enjoy a great children's book.
