Paul is a good boy. Everybody says so. But his new neighbor is enough to try anyone's patience. She walks her cat on a leash, calls Paul and his dog mean names, and makes a general nuisance of herself. Will the mild-mannered Paul survive the first week next door to Prudence?

Debut picture book author Janet Reed Ahearn and illustrator Drazen Kozjan use humor and style to show the classy approach to confronting one's peers. Loaded with color, feisty energy, and lots of good jokes, Don't Call Me Pruneface! will teach kids how to deal with bullies even as it entertains.
