The author did a great job of setting the story up this way and the illustrations peppering the text every few pages go even further in depicting the true nature of each of the characters. Aside from the message about bullying and about developing self-esteem and self-confidence, there are components of magic and fantasy in the story. The ring, we learn, is magical although the full extent of its power is not quite known by the end of the book. Miss Spitfire also has the sole power through her staff to turn children into rats. Miss Blackfeather has a few magical powers as well, but there is so much more to learn about her.
