This picture book use realistic fiction as the genre of my picture book. The purpose is to make the children familiar with the story and can relate it to their life. This picture book uses the narrative theory as the framework of the story. The narrative story is consist of abstract, orientation, complication, resolution, and evaluation. This picture book tells about a child name Deni, who survives from sexual abuse by his neighbor named Mr. Dodi. The problems start when Mr. Dodi lures Deni to come with him using lollypop. In the climax, Deni shouts for help and runs from Mr. Dodi. Then, he finds his mother and asks her to go home immediately.
