Tilden Troll didn’t think he was any different from other trolls until he entered the first grade. There, because of his size, he was laughed at and teased by his classmates, who were led by one especially nasty bully. But when the bully found himself in big trouble, only Tilden’s size could save him. That became the start of a new friendship and the end of the bullying. The class learned that it’s okay to be different, everyone is; but bullying and making fun of others is always wrong.

he can be as tall as he is and he shouldn't get bullied for it and you shouldn't either

Children today go to schools that are multicultural and populated by students of many races, religions and languages. I wrote this book in hopes of teaching children to be kind to one another despite their differences and that bullying is never appropriate behavior. In the process, I tried to make it an enjoyable, funny read for parents. Enjoy!
