“I’m so proud of this book and the message it conveys,” Dolly Parton told People. Years ago I wrote the song “Makin’ Fun Ain’t Funny” for my children’s album “I Believe In You”. I wanted the children to understand how harmful bullying can be for someone,” he stressed.

The book will be published by Penguin Young Readers in April 2023 and is aimed at readers aged 4 to 7.

Dolly Parton has also written the children’s books ‘Coat Of Many Colors’ (1994) and ‘I Am A Rainbow’ (2009).
