October is National Bullying Prevention Month and Spookley the Square Pumpkin and PACER Center have teamed up with other partners to spread the word nationwide.

Spookley author Joe Troiano, whose other Holiday Hill Farm books include Mistletoe and the Christmas Kittens, Lyla the Lovesick Lady Bug, JellyBean and the Unbreakable Egg, and Beacon the Bright Little Firefly, said, “I’m honored that this book resonates with children, parents, teachers and librarians and thrilled that Spookley’s positive message will be used to help PACER on this very important national issue.”
