One day, Norbert’s teacher challenges his class to try something new. In order to encourage everyone to participate, the teacher continues to sweeten the pot. But when Norbert is less than eager to try the new food, he experiences first-hand what it’s like to be on the receiving end of peer pressure.

This book offers a vividly insightful look into peer pressure.
