The first day at a new school is difficult for any kid. But when second grader, William Winkey meets school bully, Betty Barsky at the bus stop before the first day of school at Tapwater Springs Elementary School, William’s anxiety level rises sky high. First she makes fun of his name. Then she makes fun of his lunch- his favorite- an egg salad sandwich. The next day she makes fun of his clothes. Eventually, Betty threatens to punch William in the nose! What should William do to protect himself and change Betty’s bad, bullying behavior? Fortunately, William has a smart mom who teaches him how to deal with bullies. William and the audience learn the three rules of dealing with bullies: Stand tall, Don’t fall, Tell all!
