Everyone knows a bully like Astrid--she's "the meanest girl you could possibly meet," and she and her family have moved in down the street! She has a bad attitude and thinks nothing of terrorizing tabby cats, trashing tulip beds, or toppling lemonade stands. It's not easy to stay out of Astrid's way. Who has the strength of character to ask her why she's so mean? Not since Bootsie Barker Bites has such a deliciously mischievous character (who gets her comeuppance) been drawn. From the author of Dirtball Pete comes another character you won't soon forget.
