Creating a Middle Grade Children’s Book 10: Character Tweaks

I’m planning on publishing the book when I get back to New Zealand and want to make the book more representative of Kiwis. I’ve decided to make Trevor of Polynesian heritage.

Trevor is one of my favourite characters, as he is a big guy, with a good heart, who redeems himself at the end to help FAB.

Here is the revised line-up of the Friends Against Bullies… and the bullies.
