Move   Luke was happily walking
Pee    to school minding his own
Wee!   business whistling as he
       went. Suddenly he heard
       someone shout “Get out
       of my way Pee Wee!” As
       he turned around he saw
       Kevin, the biggest boy in
       school, racing towards
       him on his skateboard.
       Luckily he leapt out of
       the way just in time to
       avoid being knocked over.

                                 saw Kevin with his dog
                                 waiting on the corner.
                                 Luke kept walking and
                                 hoped for the best. “Hey
                                 Shrimp, what’s it like
                                 down there,” laughed
                                 Kevin. “You are the most
                                 pathetic excuse for a boy
                                 I have ever seen.”

                                 Luke ran home as quickly as

                                 Kevin or his dog wouldn’t

                                 home he went into his
                                 bedroom and sat alone,
                                 quietly wondering why

“You’re so small and

Luke tried to hold back the

                                 his eyes and wished he
                                 didn’t have to go to school.

    help me?   You shouldn’t take time off
               school unless you are really
               ill,” said Mrs Thomas.
               “Should I tell mum about
               Kevin?” thought Luke.

Tell mum                   Don’t tell mum

everything that had

of the nasty things that
Kevin had said and that he
was afraid to go to school.

                     Luke’s mum said to Luke
                     that she thought the
                     names Kevin had called him
                     were silly names. “Shrimp,
                     is that the best he can
                     do?” giggled Luke’s mum.
Luke started to laugh too, as he thought about
what Kevin had said. “Feed me to his dog, what
a ridiculous idea” chuckled Luke.

                     started to say mean things
                     Luke didn’t start to cry.
                     Instead he thought about
                     how silly Kevin was and
                     began laughing. Kevin tried
                     again but Luke just laughed
                     even harder.
Kevin finally got bored with Luke laughing at
him and just carried on walking to school.
