Marvin’s Monster Diary 4
(But We Stand Up, Big Time)
BY DR. RAUN MELMED AND Caroline Bliss Larsen
ILLUSTRATED BY ARIEF KRIEMBONGA
It’s the clawsomest time of year: summer vacation! All Marvin and his friends want is to enjoy their turf—the park across the street—and play superheroes to their hearts’ content. But when bullies arise, so does conflict. Suddenly a power struggle erupts over playground dibs. It’s Marvin and his band of Super Scarers versus Drake the Dreadful and his too-cool-for-school minions!
But the monsters discover that bullying isn’t always black and white, good guys and bad guys. By using tools such as ST4 and a circular role-playing game, Marvin and his friends discover that defeating bullying doesn’t always mean defeating bullies.

“Early readers will love reading about all of Marvin’s plans and learn that if you don’t succeed, try, try again.”
