The vibrant, whimsical illustrations make this surprisingly light-hearted book about bullying and being proud to be yourself extra enjoyable. The positive influence of Molly Lou Melon's grandma and how it helps her overcome with the teasing of one Ronald Durkin with kindness and genuine sense of self is fantastic and makes both Molly Lou Melon and her grandma worth emulating.

I love Molly Lou Melon! She is a fantastic girl who, despite some differences, listens to the advice her grandmother gives her to believe in herself, be proud of herself, and just be her great self. :) Even when a boy at school bullies her multiple times, she follows her grandmother's advice and shows the bully how remarkable she is, and they turn out to be friends.

This is a great book with a great message! It's just the right amount of silly and meaningful, and it can appeal to a wide variety of ages--from toddlers to teenagers! Molly Lou Melon can help all of us re-think how we feel about ourselves and how we think about or deal with others' opinions.
