In this zany book written and illustrated by Paula Bowles, young readers find a bully of a bird learning a valuable lesson. While we don't know why Scary Mary acts as she does, we are treated to seeing how happy and playful the barnyard becomes once all the animals are friends. This book could be used as a springboard for short parent/child discussions about the possibilities of why Scary Mary acts the way she does, which could provide children with insight into bullies they might meet in real life. I also like the way Bowles has Scary Mary being the one to go to the other animals after she has scared them off and asking them to play. The reader sees Scary Mary knows she's wrong and takes the first step toward making things right.

I love Bowles's artwork for this book. It is similiar in style to that of Betsy Lewin in many of Doreen Cronin's books. It's outlandish. It's big. Just like Scary Mary is at the beginning. This is a fun book with a fabulous message. I highly recommend it.

Scary Mary ruled the roost. Other animals wanted to play with her, but she would scare them away. She put up signs and gates to keep them out. Scary Mary kept all the sunflower seeds to herself. The animals wanted to join her. Scary Mary shouted "No!"

When Scary Mary was all alone and had the barnyard to herself, she realized that being alone was very lonely. How will Scary Mary ever get the other animals to want to play with her again? You'll have to read this wonderful book to find out.

This is a debut book from Paula Bowles. This hilarious story will teach young readers about sharing and friendship. Vivid pictures of Scary Mary's frantic outbursts, will have kids giggling. Bullying is a big topic in schools, and this is a perfect way to teach a lesson about bullying. Parents and teachers can utilize this tool to open up dialogue and help children better understand how to deal with a bully.

Format: Hardcover
Scary Mary by Paula Bowles is a funny book about friendship. Set in a barnyard, Scary Mary is the hen who rules the roost. She won't play with any of the other animals. She even practices making scary faces. This chick is hard core scary. After she bullies everyone away, Mary finds out she is lonely. Luckily, the other animals are willing to take Scary Mary back into the fold. Mary learns an important lesson on friendship.
This book begs to be read aloud. The illustrations are funny and engaging. It is short enough to keep the attention of toddlers and preschoolers. There are great opportunities for children to make predictions or make connections to the text.
I was provided a free copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion.
