A wonderfully rhymed book about true friendship and its ability to take down bullying one act of kindness at a time.
When you see another person being treated unfairly, do stick up for them? Or ignore the situation and go about your day?
Days at school are tough for Dino Deegan. Being included at recess is his dream, but his claws are so big that they get in the way. On top of that…Dino Deegan is made fun of for them.
“Your claws are too sharp to join in our games,”
they said as they pointed and called Deegan names.
“You’re creepy and odd,” they yelled, and they jeered,
and poor Deegan thought, “This is just what I feared.”
But wait! There’s a new kid in class. She introduces herself to Deegan as Cass. Friendship sparks fly as they become immediate friends, but the classroom bullies have a different plan in mind and try to deter Cass from being Dino Deegan’s friend.
What will Cass do?
Will she follow the bullies and stop being Dino Deegan’s friend?
Or will she stand up for her new friend and help the bullies see the error in their ways?
Join Dino Deegan and Cass on a transformative adventure, written in magically rhymed verse, with diverse characters and astounding illustrations.
This book was created to help children understand that true friendship is key and taking down bullies one act of kindness is possible.
