Book Description

A book with a positive message about bullying written for kids (and adults too) by a kid!

Emily is the new girl at school. She learns quickly that her first day at a new school isn't going to go the way she expected. She gets teased about her appearance among other things. At first, Emily thinks that there is something wrong with her, and wonders if there is something she can fix about herself to get the other kids to stop teasing. She soon learns that the problem isn't her, it's them. Together with some new friends that she initially overlooks due to her worries, they bring about change at their school with confidence, communication and teamwork.

This book is written by Jessica Arnold, the author of "I am Good at Lots of Things" and "Hello My Name is Rose and this is My Christmas Story"

"Nobody Can Take My Happy Away" is inspired by her own real experiences. Jessica communicates her feelings with this story about how she got her "happy" back and her confidence.

About the Author

Jessica Arnold writes books for children. Her first book, "I am Good at Lots of Things" was started when she was just seven and completed when she was twelve out of a need to write something that made kids feel good about themselves. Jessica thinks that self confidence is the key to getting through some of the pressures kids have to deal with. Her messages are always positive, and she illustrates her own books with her lively, expressive artistic style.

5.0 out of 5 stars I loved this and I don't even have kids January 19, 2013

I like things simple and it amazes me how the most complex ideas can be explained in simple language. What I wouldn't have given to had this book when I was a child. With all the anti-bullying this book would be a great addition.

3.0 out of 5 stars At First March 11, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
At first I was confused as to why this whole thing looked so basic and simple until I read about the author and realized that she is only 12 years old. The story is mostly tell and not show, and the art is very elementary (The author bring 12 explains a lot.)
The story has a good theme, not be to like everyone else. She moves the story along well and describes her feelings as good as a 12 year old can. The grandchildren however could not sit thru it.

4.0 out of 5 stars What kids should know about bullying June 4, 2013
By BuzzBee
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a clear way to help explain bullying to kids and the author gets the point across. It encourages kids to find their own identity and self-worth instead of going with the crowd and lowering their standards.

More About the Author

Jessica Arnold was born in Owosso, Michigan in 1999. She enjoys writing and illustrating stories for young children and her peers. Her first book, I am Good at Lots of Things was started when she was just seven and completed when she was twelve. Jessica was a hit on Amazon at the age of twelve with I am Good at Lots of Things. Her book about bullying Nobody Can Take My Happy Away sometimes surpasses traditionally published titles in popularity. At the age of fourteen, Jessica simply writes what she feels her peers would like to hear on a number of topics.

Jessica's first book was something her mother encouraged her to write. I am Good at Lots of Things was a story she began writing and illustrating when she was just seven. She was upset by the challenges she faced at school. She was reminded that we are all individuals with different talents, and she wanted to share that. Jessica is inspired to write by her own personal experiences. Her stories often begin with ordinary circumstances such as going to the optometrist for glasses or playing video games. If something resonates with Jessica, she begins with her notebook and pencil, framing out her story page by page. Next, she begins illustrating the story with color pencils or water color. Her expressive artistic style is unique to anything seen before.

Jessica's fictional characters evolve in every story. Jessica's characters face difficulties, disabilities and emotional challenges, but they always prevail, inform and unite people. Jessica wrote a story about being thankful for the gifts that she had been given instead of thinking about what she wasn't good at. Jessica feels that book publishing has a bright future because it is now open to a more diverse group of writers. She is honored to have the opportunity to be a young author who can write and speak directly to young readers and inspire them.
