Another wonderful children's book by Judy Blume which discusses the effects children can have on one another, especially when hurting one another's feelings.

Do I really need to write a review for this book? It's BLUBBER, for godsakes! Judy Blume rocks. It's awesome to be able to revisit the classics as I introduce my nieces to her work. If you haven't read this one in a few (too many) years, do. Then pass on to the ten-year-old girl in your life.
