Life is FULL of lessons, and Sweet Willie McDuffie has to learn them just like everyone else, including you! Maybe by reading Willie's stories, you can get some ideas about how to get a "head start" on learning some of these lessons. For example, Willie's first lesson is about bullying. Wouldn't you like to know how someone else successfully handles the problem in case you have to face it one day? Luckily Willie has a sister (Susie) who cares about him, and both of them have a friend (Al the Owl) who is very wise. Al's true stories are always at the bottom of Willie's correctly handling problems. Read about Willie and learn some valuable lessons the easy way!
