CINCINNATI - Bullying is a growing problem in schools across the country, but a local author and artist are hoping to bring it to an end.
"TWIGS and the Bully" is a children's book written by Dennis Charlton, with illustrations by Steve Fine.
It is a book about a young boy and friends who are challenged by a school bully.
The book is written for an age group of 4 to 9 years old.
At the end of the book, there are questions designed to seek out possible problems that a child may have kept secret.
Charlton and Fine will talk about the book in-depth Monday on 9 News at noon.
