OVERVIEW: We follow the story of Boogie the rat - the school bully.
Throughout the week Boogie is nasty to his classmates but there is a twist in the tale – we start to find out why Boogie is a bully.
The point of this story isn’t to tell you that Boogie is a bad individual and he’s horrible all the time. It’s to tell you just how easy it is to become a bully yourself.
