Stand Tall, Molly Lou Melon By Patty Lovell

Content Rating

  • Molly Lou Melon is short and clumsy, has buckteeth, and has a voice that sounds like a bullfrog being squeezed by a boa constrictor. She doesn't mind. Her grandma has always told her to walk proud, smile big, and sing loud, and she takes that to heart.

    But then Molly Lou has to start in a new school. Ronald Durkin calls her "SHRIMPO!" and "BUCKY-TOOTH BEAVER!" But Molly Lou has learned a lot from her grandma and knows just how to put him in his place-in a very satisfying way.

    First time author Patty Lovell has created an irresistible free spirit in Molly Lou Melon, and artist David Catrow has infused her personality with even more wit and humor.
  • A little girl is taunted relentlessly by classmates because of her buck teeth, her funny voice, and her short stature.  Little Molly Lou Melon relies on advice from her grandmother and learns to hold her head high in this witty and vibrantly illustrated story about bullying at its best.
