The Recess Queen by Alexis O'Neill (2002)


Paperback in Very Good (VG) condition.

An irrepressible new girl dethrones the reigning recess bully by becoming her friend in this infectious playground romp./i
Mean Jean was Recess Queen and nobody said any different.
Nobody swung until Mean Jean swung.
Nobody kicked until Mean Jean kicked.
Nobody bounced until Mean Jean bounced.
If kids ever crossed her, she'd push 'em and smoosh 'em
lollapaloosh 'em, hammer 'em, slammer 'em
kitz and kajammer 'em.
Until a new kid came to school!
Parents and teachers will appreciate the story's deft handling of conflict resolution (which happens without adult intervention).
