Chandler Drake is in middle school and rides the school bus that Bob Bell drives.  They’re also neighbor’s, so when Bob sees that Chandler is being bullied, he wants to help.  Bob does what he can, but he would like to do more.  When he discovers a second boy, Nick Morenus, who lives nearby and rides a different bus, is going through a similar situation, Bob attempts to offer a solution to help both boys.  Chandler has devised his own solution that works even better when combined with Bob’s proposal.  Will this strategy solve their problem?

 This is my entry for the Fall/Winter 2021 anthology, ‘An Unconventional Gift’.

A tender tale of many unconventional, unconditional gifts of friendship, care and protection.  It was a very happy and warm feeling story that brings gladness to the heart.  A quick read with long lasting results.

A great short where the school bus driver comes up with an unconventional way to help 2 boys who were being bullied. The boys themselves create a happy place within themselves, where they can go when being bullied or just suffering from stressful situations.
