the great and powerful brave raideen cover smThe Great and Powerful, Brave Raideen

Description: Second-grader William enjoyed the sanctity of his room where he would sit by himself, surrounded by his toys. In his room, he was safe from Randy, the bully who tortured him at school. William schemed about what he would do to get back at Randy with his favorite toy, a Shogun Warrior called Brave Raideen. When pressed about what he should do to get back at Randy, Brave Raideen told him, "You should get the thing in your mommy's nightstand. That'll scare him real good!" With that sage advice, William was convinced that Brave Raideen had the answer to his problem; he would show Randy who was the bigger kid when he saw him on the school playground. The next day, William's plan did not work out well for him but he later discovered a different way to make peace with Randy. A short story by Scott Semegran.
