I wish Barney Bookhousen
Would just disappear.
If he would go away,
Oh, how my friends and I would cheer!
Barney Bookhousen is a bully whose only talent, or so it seems, is making everyone miserable. Will a bit of curiosity on the part of a classmate confirm Barney's reputation? Should we just accept “once a bully, always a bully”? This story teaches that amazing things can happen when we find and focus on something good in people.
