About the Author

Julia Cook, M.S. is a national award-winning children's author, counselor, and parenting expert. She has presented in thousands of schools nationally and internationally, regularly speaks at education and counseling conferences, and has published children's books on a wide range of character and social development topics. The goal behind Cook's work is to actively involve young people in fun, memorable stories and teach them to become lifelong problem solvers. Inspiration for her books comes from working with children and carefully listening to counselors, parents, and teachers, in order to stay on top of needs in the classroom and at home. Cook has the innate ability to enter the worldview of a child through storybooks, giving children both the "what to say" and the "how to say it."


It is clear that Julia Cook is very in-touch with the realities of how much to both engage and educate children. She has created a fanciful story replete with rhyme, repetition, and a healthy dose of imagery and imagination that tastefully and responsibly tackles the problem of childhood tattling. A wonderful book that children, parents, and educators will love!

A great book I use with my first graders at the beginning of the year (or whenever the class needs an extra reminder) to discuss the differences between tattling vs needing to tell (as in an emergency). My students have always enjoyed this book and will frequently reference back to it from time to time.
