Readers will flip for Aunt Mattie!

This two-in-one flip book contains two novels in their entirety. In No More Nice, eleven-year-old Simon meets his eccentric Great Aunt Matilda and Uncle Philbert, who have very different ideas about what good manners are. In the sequel, No More Nasty, Aunt Mattie returns as a substitute teacher for Simon's rambunctious class, using her unique way of looking at things to make learning fun.

Praise For No More Nice, No More Nasty

About No More Nice:
"This is rollicking good fun, with much of the drollery captured in Smith's black-and-white illustrations . . . Sharp characterizations and crack dialogue will have readers laughing out loud." - Kirkus Reviews

About No More Nasty:
