Dear Mr. Sachar,
I am at a new school this year as a 4th grader. I felt left out from my other class members because I played on the bars and only third graders were there. Then, we did some literature circles during reading class with There's a Boy in the Girls' Bathroom. I feel that it made me become closer to my class. I felt like a part of them when we all talked about the character Bradley. And it showed me and my class how bullies can be so mean when they pick on other kids.
I found out that it can just be a problem with their family or someone close to them. Maybe they feel left out in their family and so they get mad at everyone. I can get grumpy like that sometimes in the morning if I did not have a good morning. I was wondering if one of your friends was a bully when you were little? Or maybe you were the one? I was thinking that because you put yourself into Bradley's life so good. I was just wondering. The other thing that I learned is that girls can be so cruel to boys also. When Colleen gave Bradley a black eye I thought that was mean of her too!
Thank you for writing books that kids are interested in. What is your favorite book that you have written so far?
