BetterNot! And the Tale of Bratsville
Gene Del Vecchio, author
BetterNot! And the Tale of Bratsville is a picture book for children ages 4 to 8 that tells the story about a town filled with very naughty children like Larry Liar, Rebecca Robber and Lilly Loudmouth. They lie, steal and call people names. Their parents could not make them behave no matter what they tried. As the parents told their children again and again what they better not do, the magical creature named BetterNot rose from his magical, bubbling purple swamp to come to their aid. He swooped into town to teach each child a valuable lesson in a way that fit each child's poor behavior. So children everywhere need to obey their parents. If they do not, BetterNot might come to your town, too!
