Review:

"BetterNot! And the Tale of Bratsville succeeds by using a powerful blend of color illustration and written word that deftly hones in on unacceptable behaviors and extraordinary solutions. Parents using this for read-aloud will be equally delighted by the story's fresh, vivid approach which features many unexpected moments and makes it a top, highly recommended read!" 
-- D. Donovan, Senior eBook Reviewer, Midwest Book Review  (Recommended)

"DelVecchio certainly has a grasp on how to engage parents and young readers alike. The book is part fun bedtime story and part cautionary tale and thus serves dual purposes: to delight children with rhyming prose and colorful, engaging illustrations and to dictate to them that certain behaviors aren't acceptable in society...This funny, thoughtful work may be very helpful for caretakers trying to curb children's less-than-savory actions."  --Kirkus Reviews (Recommended)

Professional Mom/Educator Blogger Reviews

"If you are a parent, grandparent or teacher with preschool to elementary aged children, I think this is a great book to introduce to them about behavior and expectations." --MyBoysAndTheirToys.com (Recommended)
 

"The book has a great sing-song rhyming swing to it as the monster addresses behaviors by mirroring what the children are doing". --MomAreWeThereYet.net (Recommended)
 
"It delivers the message through a seamless combination of colorful, playful illustrations, carefully composed rhymes that are easy to read and remember, and witty metaphors that both kids and adults can entertain." --IceFairysTreasureChest.blogspot.com (Recommended)
 
"I'm always looking for books that will inspire my students and capture their attention...this book fit right in." --TheFunky-Monkey.com (Recommended)
