Rated G - Good, even great at times, generally useful!Organized into short chapters Lilly Traps the Bullies is an excellent introduction for children beginning to reader longer novels. Choice of font size is appropriate and having illustrations every few pages will also help the child to have some visual clues as well as graphic details of story concepts.
