    ITEM#: 2516633

    ALEXIS O’NEILL's all-time favorite game at recess was kickball. She also loved kick-the-can, hide-and-seek, and red rover, but she wasn't fond of dodge ball (ouch!). Alexis is grateful for the loyal, true-blue friends she has in her life. She lives in Southern California with her best, best friend (who has never ever been her worst best friend)--her husband, David, a computer wiz who makes her laugh.

    LAURA Huliska-Beith was an enthusiastic hopper” in the schoolyard, where she was often found playing hopscotch and jumping rope. A not-so-big kid, and now a not-so-big grown up, Laura lives in Kansas City, Missouri, with her four best, best friends (yes, she believes you can have four best, best friends): her husband Jeff, and their three dogs Roxy, Chloe, and Jake.
    A fresh & original twist on the common issue of bullying. Kids will relate, & parents & teachers will appreciate the story's deft handling of conflict resolution (which happens w/o adult intervention)

    Mean Jean was Recess Queen
    and nobody said any different.
    Nobody swung until Mean Jean swung.
    Nobody kicked until Mean Jean kicked.
    Nobody bounced until Mean Jean bounced.
    If kids ever crossed her, she'd push 'em and smoosh 'em
    lollapaloosh 'em, hammer 'em, slammer 'em
    kitz and kajammer 'em.
    Until a new kid came to school!
    With her irrepressible spirit, the new girl dethrones the reigning recess bully by becoming her friend in this infectious playground romp.
