    One thought on “Bully Bait

    1. Betsy

      Hilarious in a very middle school way, The Odd Squad is the latest comic/illustrated novel (a la Wimpy Kid or Dork Diaries) to hit shelves; I must say, it's a heap site better than those other two in my opinion. In fact, this is sort of Lunch Lady meets Wimpy Kid: a motley and unlikely collection of 3 misfits learns how to beat the bully with some behind the scenes help from the school janitor (there's more to the janitor than meets the eye!). But it's more than just a lesson in standing up for [...]

      I got this book through the giveaway. It couldn't have come at a better time. Both of my kids are having "bully issues" and this book taught them to stand up for themselves and also to learn a little bit about why the bully is a bully. It wasn't boring, because it had them cracking up while reading it. My son was able to identify with the main character (who ended up being kind of a hero, yay!). He also especially loved the illustrations on each page. This is definitely something I would have p [...]

    3. Brian

      This was a very cute, quick read, that deals with the topic of bullying. Three outcasts in a public junior high are being bullied, so the principal puts them together in the form of a safety team. The book has nice artwork, but is clearly a Diary of a Wimpy Kid knockoff.

    4. Audrey

      Well, this is going to be my recommendation to the young lady obsessed with the "Terrible Two" series by Barnett. It is funny but deals with serious topics (divorce, abandonment, grief, bullying). However, it doesn't beat you over the head with them. It also has great illustrations.

      Nick is tired of being shoved into his locker by Roy, who relentlessly bullies everyone at Emily Dickinson Middle School, but know that as the shortest 7th grader EVER, he is unlikely to break free of Roy's tyranny. When the school psychologist decides that Nick would be safer if he had a peer group, Nick doesn't protest too much when he gets put on the Safety Patrol with the lone member of said patrol, Warren, as well as Molly, a tall girl whose shoelaces are frequently tied together. With the [...]

      Three school 'misfits' join forces and work to overcome bullying at their school. Told in a quirky and fun way, complete with illustrations, Michael Fry has done a fantastic job of "putting the lipstick on the bullying pig," and showing that its still what it is, an unfortunate and sometimes unavoidable curse of school life.Told from Nick's point of view, we are privy to his inner thoughts as he goes through each day, each event at an age when things really get tough for kids, middle school! You [...]

    7. Amy

      This was genuinely funny with a solid message. I would think that kids would just eat this up! James Patterson has written books for Middle School trying for humor but Michael Fry has him beat by a mile. Three loners at school are being bullied and suffering from peer allergies. The counselor decides they would benefit by being in a group and assigns all of them to Safety Patrol. The janitor, Mr. Dupree, claims to be ex-secret service and has agreed to tutor them in the finer skills of surveilla [...]

      This book deals sensitively and humorously with the complex problem of bullying. Like Roald Dahl, Michael Fry has written beautifully about the lovable oddball who is able to rise above a dastardly situation. Here we have three protagonists, either too short or too tall or just too nerdy to fit in anywhere. But together they make a Mean Machine for combatting the school Bully. Weaving throughout the story is the school janitor, a delightful merging of genius and wackiness, who is able to help th [...]

      I enjoyed this book. Yes, there are some common themes here, but as a middle school teacher, what impressed me is that Fry aptly illustrates that the line sometimes is a little more blurry than just bully vs. bully-ee. Just like in real life, not every good guy is always good and vice versa, and not every adult is a saint or an enemy. The characters are real and human and nuanced in a way that previous incarnations have not been. What also distinguishes this book from others is how well the adul [...]

      Nick’s,Molly’s,and Karl’s goal is to prove the whole middle school that they're not lame,odd or nothing.Molly is 12 years old and the tallest girl in the school.Nick is small and weak and gets bullied everyday. An Karl is hopeless because he thinks too much. The three met when Nick formed a club called the odd squad. the book keeps the reader entertain by the odd squad's by the groups what they do, say,and plan and I would recommend this book to readers that like this type of humor and typ [...]

    11. Louise Bendall

      A laugh-out-loud story of life in middle school and how awful it can seem at times. Nicks is picked on because he's short, Molly is picked on because she's tall, and Karl is clueless. At the suggestion of their guidance teacher (okay, she makes it mandatory), the three of them form a Safety Patrol to keep kids safe from bullies. It's an absurdly nuanced story of nerds winning, and bullies being the ones who need your pity. Fantastic illustrations throughout add to the story!

    12. Christina Dudley

      My eleven-year-old son gave this book its rating. According to him it's about a group of nerdy middle-schoolers who take on the school bully. (Classic!) He liked all the pictures and laughed a lot while reading it and says he'll probably read it again. Not sure he could give higher praise!THE ODD SQUAD falls in that DIARY OF A WIMPY KID and THE DORK DIARIES genre: text and lots of hand-sketched pictures.

    13. Samantha

      I thought that this was the best of the 2 books in the series.I read the 2nd one in the series before the 1st one,and I felt like I was missing out.i got this book from the public library near where I live9thanks to my mom)and I wizzed through it.My mom was surprised that at the end of the day she asked me "how are you liking that book?" and I said "Oh it was great.I'm done by the way so you can take it back to the library.".And that is that!

    14. Leo

      i liked this book. it kept me awake when we had a seemingly long ride home from camping. i love how the story has a twist that turns the whole story around, the hilarious drawings that that he puts on each page, its a pretty good book.

    15. Amber

      I read this one out loud to my 10-year-old boys- they thought it was hilarious! The illustrations were priceless.

    16. Quinn Thayer

      I think the odd squad bully bait was a very interesting book to read. Because it shows that this boy named Nick has been getting bullied for along time by this big bully Roy and what he doesn't see is that Roy has feelings too. He thinks he's this "mutant troll". This book shows that just cause your tough on the inside doesn't mean that he doesn't have something that he loves. Nick is always trying to find a way to make Roy stop bullying him. After being shoved in a locker a lot of times the gui [...]

      Note to self: This book was included in middle school required list for 2017 - 2018. Children and I went over this book and decided we are not interested.

    18. Vexing Altruist

      This was probably one of my favorite books ever. I am not usually a fan of these types of books, but I was trying something new and this seemed like a good book. I was mistaken when I said good. It was a fantastic book and I would recommend it for younger people who do face these problems of being bullied anywhere, whether it’s at school or outside of school. It is about a boy named Nick, who is the SHORTEST 7th grade to ever be known (or at least that’s what he thinks) who gets shoved into [...]

    19. Dalton

      I think that this book is very lively and by that I mean that there is always something happening or going on in this book like it could be funny or suspenseful with the stories that the janitor tells in the book. This books genre would probably be fantasy only because of the supposedly spirit that haunts the school but helps out the Odd Squad from Roy. Something that really pulled me in for this book is the fact that this kid kept getting bullied at school but then when he got home he would bul [...]

      HANDLUNG:Paul ist der kleinste Schüler seiner Schule, ja der ganzen Welt. Aus diesem Grund ist es für den Schulbully Roy ein Leichtes Paul jeden Tag aufs Neue in sein Schließfach zu stopfen. Wäre das nicht schon schlimm genug, verdonnert ihn die Schulpsychologin gemeinsam mit Molly, dem wahrscheinlich größten Mädchen der Schule, dem unsichtbaren Karl beim Wachdienst zu helfen gegen solche Mobbingvorfälle und andere Schandtaten vorzugehen. Dabei werden sie vom Hausmeister Mr. Dupree unter [...]

      Cartoonist Michael Fry, who is best known for his comic strips, Committed and Over the Hedge, enters the world of middle grade fiction with the first book in his new Odd Squad series, entitled Bully Bait. Nick, the shortest kid in his seventh grade class, has gotten pretty used to being thrown into lockers, but he doesn’t like it, and he is definitely not interested in making himself a bigger target by joining a school club. Unfortunately, Nick’s guidance counselor thinks he needs a place to [...]

      Nick is the shortest middle-schoolerever. At least that's what he thinks. The first time we meet him--the first sentence of the book--he is stuffed in his locker "Again."Simultaneously reflecting upon this fact and strategizing how he might get out, Nick is unwilling to consider revealing the name of the bully who repeatedly torments him. Dr. Daniels, the school counselor, teams him with Molly, an exceptionally TALL middle-school girl and Karl, whom Nick terms a "loser" in every sense of the wor [...]

      A Shakespeare-quoting janitor, a safety patrol of one, and the ghost of Emily Dickinson what do all of these have in common? They're all a part of the mix at Emily Dickinson Middle School. Also included in the halls of Dickinson are: Nick I-am-short-enough-to-fit-in-any-locker Ramsey, the "Molly Green Giant" Molly Wibble and Karl Mooney, the lone member of the safety patrol, all constant bully targets. Their most constant tormentor is Roy, though they would never tell any adult that. After Nick [...]

      The Odd Squad: Bully Bait is a new book for children in the 8+ age range and is in a similar vein to Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Tom Gates and The World of Norm.

      Rating: 3.5The Low Down: Nick might as well move into his school locker. He practically lives there, considering the number of times that Roy has stuffed him in it. Then the school counselor, Dr. Daniels, decides that there’s safety in numbers and makes Nick team up with the hugely tall Molly and the pudgy and guileless Karl. They all get bullied because they suffer from peer allergies, the counselor says.Thinking his crush will like him if he can best the bully, Nick decides to try and take c [...]
