This is a book about bullying. On a deeper level, it is a book about self-empowerment. It is a book about believing in yourself.
You might say there are actually three heroes in this book. There is Celly, the little angel who is sent to earth on his first mission. There is Bobby, the boy being bullied. And there is, believe it or not, a third hero: the bully himself.
Each one becomes a hero in his own right as each discovers what he needs to learn. Bobby learns some strategies to help him deal with the bully. He also learns to claim the power he has inside and to never give it away to anyone or anything out there. Mikey, the bully, learns what it feels like to be in Bobby’s shoes. And Celly learns more about himself too.
All of these boys learn the wonderful lesson of feeling good about themselves, believing in themselves, and knowing that things really can change if one believes they can. They learn that they can move through their fears and find their own freedom and happiness.
What an invaluable lesson for us all whatever our age may be!
