Ewan : From Bullied to Superhero in One Afternoon
Ewan liked school, but hated going to school. Some of the kids in his class teased him about his thick glasses, his red hair... and even his cute freckly face! So when the holidays came round, Ewan excitedly explored his home like a super hero, even venturing to the one place where, until now, he hadn't dared to go... Ewan wasn't to realise what he stumbled upon that day will change his experience of school forever. Could this one special pocket-sized discovery have the power to turn off the voices of all those who were teasing him? This book will help children to overcome situations where they may feel bullied and build their self confidence. This story is told as a metaphor to read aloud to children and enjoy together. The vibrant illustrations and use of language draws children in to be part of the adventure, gently guiding them alongside the characters to get the message on a more personal level for them, to make their own meanings and take control of their own life situation - in their own way.
