Kids’ books should set a good example

During the school holidays I read this book with the kids: The Terrible Two

The story was heaps of fun, I couldn’t put the book down. The book is about two brilliant pranksters that follow the motto: “disrupt but not destroy.” Working together, they plan and execute the biggest prank their school has ever seen.  So far so good.

The problem I see is that at the end they blame the prank on the school bully. Everyone wants the bullies to learn a lesson but I think the authors could have been cleverer about it.  Simply framing the bully for a prank he had nothing to do with does not leave a very positive message in young minds.

I’lI still look out for the other book of the series but this time I’ll check how the story ends before it goes in my shopping trolley.
