How should Riley respond? Her parents advise that she should “follow the Code of the Clown,” and always bring happiness to everyone. But how does she do that–and not get ridiculed or beaten up?
Riley is forced to grow. She learns how to deal with a bully graciously–and without violence. Using her wits makes her wits get sharper, but she learns kindness as well.
