“Once upon a very special time in a place where almost every word was put to rhyme a wondrous site appeared one night in a moonbeam…” and so begins the magical tale of four incredible children who invite the reader to journey to a wonderful world dominated and controlled by all of the colors that exist in the rainbow.
One sunny carefree afternoon the featured youngsters, Willie, Janie, Sally and Johnny known collectively by all as “The Be Good Kids”, are busy at play with the other neighborhood children when suddenly they find themselves involved in a very real and current-day dilemma initiated by the playground bully. While the other play grounders freeze in shocked dismay, The Be Good Kids each respond in his or her own unique and gifted way; Janie, from the tenderest of hearts; Sally, from her sober, stern and stoic reality; Johnny, from a very pragmatic life view; and Willie, from a leader’s all-encompassing overview. As they have been known to do in other challenging situations, The Be Good Kids take charge.
There is a surprise confrontation with a bully that is guaranteed to delight; a needed lesson is learned; and normalcy is eventually restored.
