Clarabelle Pig Comes Clean—And Takes on the Bullies!

clarabellecover19lo-dropClarabelle Comes Clean

by Timothy J. Verret
Illustrated by April Pedersen

Clarabelle Pig was drinking from the school water fountain when Barrett Frog hopped in front of her, blocking her. He stood with Andrea Fox and Ferdinand Rabbit, all laughing.

“Pigs shouldn’t drink out of fountains!” said Barrett, leaping and chuckling.

“They’re too dirty,” Andrea said, wrapping her gorgeous tail around her neck.

“Oink, oink, stinky piggy!” chimed in Ferdinand, holding his whiskered nose.

Clarabelle shook her head and stomped off to her next class. “I’m so tired of those meanies saying pigs are muddy and smelly,” she thought. “I’m gonna prove them wrong, once and for all.”

Find out how Clarabelle stops the hurtful name-calling in its tracks in Clarabelle Comes Clean, a wonderful addition to humane education classwork and lessons in bullying and societal stereotyping. The book is perfect for ages 6 and up, and the illustrations keep the attention of younger students too in parental, library, and classroom read-alongs.
