This is a basketball story about bullies. This picture book is part of the bully series of Adventures in SportsLand that focuses on bullies. This series consists of ten (10) children picture books (Baseball, Football, Basketball, Hockey, Soccer, Golf, Tennis and Volleyball) - two in Spanish - that are fun, attractive and educational. These n-violent books subliminally teach children how to better understand the handling of bullies. This bully series is aimed toward children who are just beginning to interact with sport teams, coaches, fans and players. These stories will serve as an educational tool as the characters play out real life situations and learn how to cope and handle them. Also it serves as an excellent means for an adult to start a conversation with a child about bullies, sportsmanship, family, moral values, good behavior, playing fair and most important - just having fun. Each book contains 32 illustrated pages that feature LuckySports characters (some helpful, some t) that are given a second chance in life as sport cartoon characters in a magical world of SportsLand, where sport is KING and playing is FUN. Children will experience all the ACTION, FUN and ADVENTURE of SportsLand. What is Adventures in SportsLand? Adventures in SportsLand's Bully Series is a collection of sports stories that teach children - (who are just beginning to interact with sports teams, coaches, fans and players) - about sports, along with good behavior, confidence building, playing fair and most important... just having fun. These books will help children (adults too!) to better understand how to handle bullies. Bullies in school, sports and playground are timely issues. Bully influence can impact and shape young children's future views of life.
Over twenty years ago, Chuck Hellman and his partner, Robert Tiritilli, created the LuckySports characters. Two years ago, Hellman started developing a non-violent, children's picture book bully series called Adventures in SportsLand. In this series the LuckySports characters subliminally show children the virtues of having values like sports ethics, manners, trust, confidence building, self-esteem and honesty through sports while having fun. As coaches, officials, parents, and grandparents in youth sports such as basketball, football, tennis, soccer and baseball, both Hellman and Tiritilli experienced first-hand the joy of working with their sons, grandkids, other children and parents, as well as the trials they face in social situations. Hellman also began a successful junior golf program at a local country club. Hellman used these experiences to develop the LuckySports philosophy.

He also began a successful junior golf program at a local country club. Hellman used these experiences to develop the LuckySports stories. Hellman stresses that it is not only important to help children learn through sports, but more importantly they should have fun. He hopes to achieve this through stories, books, narrations, interviews, interactive games, music and songs about his LuckySports cartoon characters. Hellman, a retired electrical engineer, is a publisher, author and guest lecturer, as well as a computer expert and golf historian. He lives in the Southern California area.
