At school, the children call him “Billy the Bully” because they are afraid of him. Billy’s heart is full of hard, black anger against the world and everyone in it. He shows that anger by being mean and rude. He does everything he can to push people away so they keep their distance.
Then one amazing day Billy unexpectedly finds himself in a dark, mysterious forest where he is given a glimpse into the lives of the people he has hurt. When he leaves the forest, his life is changed forever. Billy the Bully tells the story of a young boy whose childhood is challenging but who eventually finds the way to happiness and forgiveness.
