Jody and his squirrel family live in the backyard at Grandma Coles house.
Jody is born without a long bushy tail like other squirrels, but he is happy until the Bully Brothers call him ugly names and treat him roughly.
Grandma Cole and the other animals in the backyard come to Jodys aid along with his mother, brother, and sister.
New rules are set by Grandma Cole about how the Bullies must treat Jody and they are sent away until they can learn some manners. Life is happy again.
At the back of the book you will find material for children, teachers, parents, and group leaders that address the issues of bullying.
