Illus. by Michaela Snowden. Little Steps, 2019. ISBN: 9781925839333.
(Age: 3-6 years). Recommended. This delightful picture book will encourage much discussion on the complexities of relationships, friendship and bullying, Bruce wants it all and he wants it all his way, but he finds that his bullying behaviour does not really meet his need for friendships and fun. I was intrigued by Bianca Richardson's successful ploy to present Bruce to his friends with a new demeanour. Michaela Snowden's illustrations are engaging and they beautifully demonstrate the emotions of the various characters.
Written for younger children, this book could be a useful tool for older children as they examine the elements of relationships.
