Harry is a shy, bullied little dog. In a dream, he meets some friendly animals who teach him useful bully-blocking skills. Mia the meerkat tells him the best ways to respond to bullying; Ollie the owl emphasises eye contact; Gerry the giraffe explains the importance of good posture; and so on.

Harry puts these new skills into practice: they work immediately, and his life is transformed. In learning how to block bullies and make new friends – skills he can use all his life – Harry has shed his fear, and now enjoys being with his peers.

This book will empower 8+-year-old children to learn how to block bullies. It is based on the therapy model Evelyn developed to train psychologists, and on years of teaching bullied children how to manage their basic survival instinct. It is effective and empowering: even young children understand the concept of keeping their power, or giving it away and making the bully happy.

Harry’s story is written in the form of a poem – in rhyming four-line stanzas – to help children remember the words, which are meaningful and therapeutic.

The story is primarily for children, but some adult targets of workplace bullying also wish they had read Harry years ago, when the initial impact of the bullying was so difficult to understand.

Evelyn’s new book is available in print, as an audiobook and as an e-book: please click one of the buttons below to purchase.

Note that the audiobook can be used on its own, but is most effective when accompanied by one of the two text editions (print or e-book).

Readers love Harry the Bully Blocker:

‘I had a moment to read your lovely children’s book. I really like the style and manner in which you created the entire story. I love the way that you give advice. I think the helpful questions are great at the end of each chapter. I feel this is a sweet book that also gives practical and helpful tips along with guidance at the end with the questions organized from each chapter which can be great for discussions in classrooms, therapy offices or other organizations who work with children. Bravo my friend. May this book bring hope and kindness to children who are suffering from bullying. Love some of the rhymes as well! I like the pace of the book and it reads quickly.’

Danielle Mathew, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, The Empowerment Space

‘I love how this audiobook teaches kids that there is a really easy way to stop bullies. And I really enjoy that it’s not a human and it’s a dog. Harry is very adorable.’

Stephanie, aged 10

‘This audiobook uses the art of poetry to cleverly help children understand the experience of bullying, and presents a way forward for children who are either bullying or being bullied.’

David Opat, Child psychologist and Vice-Principal

‘I am standing on a peak in Nepal looking at the opposite peak where the music is wafting over the valley creating harmony.’
