Book Summary

Just when sixth grader, Andy Jones, thought his troubles with bullies at school were over, Mugersnot shows up again full of taunts and torments. Andy tries to convince his best friend Flynn to make a video to save his life, but that bully fighting plan takes an unexpected turn when Andy encounters the Space Invader, a mysterious Uncle, who shows up with a surprising battle plan from an ancient dude in an ancient book.

About the Book

Bully Buster Journal is a new series of fast-paced and engaging children’s books that help kids learn a better way to solve their problems with bullies from an ‘ancient dude in an ancient book’, the Bible. The goal is to reach an upper elementary and junior high school reader with stories of a bullied seventh grade boy, who discovers wise and effective ways to bust bullies from various biblical characters and their unique stories.

In the first book of the series, Andy Jones is an 11-year-old quirky doodler, who learns about the story of Nehemiah from a long lost Uncle, an archaeologist, who comes for a visit and tells Andy, the incredible bully busting secret.

Andy writes and illustrates wryly philosophical journal entries about life, (reminiscent of Wimpy Kid) and his horrible bully burdens with Tommy Mugersnot. Each book in the Bully Busters series will continue the saga of Andy in his world at home, school, friendships, and bully battles, with his arch nemesis Mugersnot and his gang of goons. Andy grows in wisdom from his encounters with biblical bully busters which at times will involve him going on an archaeological dig or two to learn from the dust of the past.
