Mr Swoon has put a 'talk chair' in his class. Pupils who are being bullied have to sit in it and talk about their problems. However, William, who is bullied a lot, prefers to keep his mouth shut. Telling on the bullies would only enrage them more. Roxy and his friends don't stop at anything: throwing William's bike into the canal, stabbing his goldfish to death... Yet William is no softy and throws Roxy's pocket knife into the toilet. When Roxy discovers that his pocket knife is missing, he decides to punish the culprit very hard...


A tough book about bullying and remaining silent and the danger of this combination.


Was shortlisted for the Book Lion in Belgium (2004).
