Murielle Bourdon was born in Longueuil, in the province of Quebec in Canada. She is mother of three young adults. Since her early childhood she developed a passion for reading, writing short stories and poems, including drawing. Secretary for more than 15 years, she decided in 1996 to change her careers towards creativity and what fascinates her: art and writing. She returned to school and received a bachelor degree in graphic design. In 17 years, her remarkable artistry creates outstanding achievement for a variety of customers. At the beginning of 2014 Murielle decides to realize a dream which she secretly had harbored since her young age, and devotes herself to writing and illustration. By creating a collection of children's books, she wants to share the real and imaginary world which is in her, with young readers.
This was a cute book about a boy that is afraid to tell anyone that he is being bullied. I liked that there was family for Thomas and that he had a support system. The author recommends saying no and telling someone about the bullies. Sami also recommends not being too hard on the main bully. This was a cute enough story, but I would have liked more accountability for the bullies. All of them. However this is a cute book. I am giving this book a 3/5. I was given a copy to review, however all opinions are my own.
