“Back Off Buzz: Ollie Outsmarts the Bully” (by Thomas Bogle)- A Book that I’m Happy to Give My Grandkids

If you have small children or grandchildren who need to know about bullying,  this is the book for them.

When I consider a children’s book for any child in my family, I always like to read it first. This book did not disappoint! It is well-written and is clear for any child aged 2-10 to understand.

I won’t give away any details because I don’t want to spoil the story but will only give a very basic review. The book is about a group of friends in the animal kingdom who are being bullied by a much larger animal, Buzz the buzzard. The group of friends consist of Ollie the wise old owl, a chipmunk, Chip, and two bluebirds, Bluey and Birdie. To protect his friends, Ollie outsmarts Buzz, proving that brains will always triumph over physical size and strength.

Also, the book is well-illustrated with pictures that match the words perfectly. Ingrid Orlando Zon does a wonderful job illustrating the book.

When this book is released by Amazon on Feb. 1, 2022, I will definitely order a few more for my 3 year-old niece and a few other children I know.

  1. Nice one…if we can have more books such as this one it will educate our kids from young age to not bully so if we can do this a norm then in future we will not face bullying problems. What I learned is that some people bully others without knowing that they are bullies so educating is the key…
