By Sue de Gennaro
Marvin loves his job, and the people he works with. Unfortunately, his friends love playing jokes more
than they love working. Even though the jokes are not really funny, Marvin tries to laugh along. But
soon he realises that his friends only play their jokes on him. Frustrated and upset Marvin has to make a choice - will he run away and hide, or face his friends?
In her latest offering, Sue de Gennaro has tackled a sensitive issue faced by many children.
