A Girl and an Alien Bond Over Their Differences in Oops Was Bullied? Published by Outskirts Press

When a little human meets a tiny stranger from space by chance, they bond despite physical and language barriers. Oops the alien and little Allie become fast friends in Oops Was Bullied?

Amarillo, TX, March 06, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Oops isn't just an name; it's a state of being. When Oops the alien hurtles to Earth from his home in outer space, the first human he meets is curious little Allie. The two overcome their “cultural” differences and language barriers, and learn about friendship in the children's book, Oops Was Bullied?, published by Outskirts Press.

Oops Was Bullied? tells the tale of two beings – a wee extraterrestrial named Oops and a young Earth girl – who become friends when Oops crashes to Earth. They couldn't be more different: different languages, different points of view, different backgrounds, all packed into two very different little bodies. In fact, it's those differences that lead to a harsh reality for tiny Oops, who is bullied because he's not like others.

Written for children from preschool age through grade five, the juvenile fiction, Oops Was Bullied? by author Sharon King is a fun and easy read that teaches children valuable lessons about the consequences of bullying through the eyes of her vibrant and lovable characters.

Oops Was Bullied? is available online in paperback through Amazon and Barnes and Noble and at www.outskirtspress.com/bookstore for a maximum trade discount in quantities of ten or more.
