Marlene, Marlene, Queen of Mean by Jane Lynch

Marlene, Marlene, Queen of MeanMarlene is the mean girl.  She pinches, kicks, flicks, and scowls. She is queen of the sidewalk, playground and the school and you better watch out or she’ll trip you and hit you.

 Tired of her meanness, Freddy decides to stand up to her. He decides she’s not very tall and there’s no reason to be afraid of her. And even though Marlene attacks the kids, they still stand their ground and tell her she’s a bully. Marlene starts to cry and realizes she can’t be a bully anymore.  She becomes someone else, someone who is nice and helpful. Although she still occasionally slips and is mean, she has been made to see the error of her ways and decides this is a much better way to be.

 This comical rhyming picture book is great to read to a bully or to someone who is being bullied.
