Starting on Monday and working through all the days of the week, Joseph tries to deal with a lunchroom bully. On Monday he has his brownie taken, on Tuesday he’s left with only carrot sticks, on Wednesday his bully follows him into the bathroom to take his lunch, and on Thursday Joseph goes outside to eat lunch all alone. Friday is the best day. That is the day Joseph makes a trip to the principal’s office and he learns the difference between tattling and telling. At lunch, Mr. Tate catches the bully in the act and Joseph has a very good day.

A Tattle-Tell Tale is an important book for children—and adults—of all ages to read. Older readers will be glad for a story that both engages children and helps them to understand the importance of communication with adults. Younger readers, especially those who may be struggling with a bully at school, will gain insight as to what to do... Highly recommended.
— CM: Canadian Review of Materials, January 2016

The delicate issues covered in each book [in the I’m a Great Little Kid series] are presented in relatable and useful ways that will allow children to connect and find solutions for troublesome situations that they may encounter. Leng employs great identity and ethnic diversity in the cast of characters through bright, expressive, and simple illustrations perfect for young readers.
— School Library Journal
