"Prior to Tassell's visit, every sixth-grader at the school read "Don't Feed the Bully."
Kathy Burnette, media specialist at Discovery, explained the middle school's anti-bullying committee had searched for a way to integrate anti-bullying-related fiction into the students' studies as a way to open a dialogue with them about bullying." Kim Kilbride, South Bend Tribune
"Mr. Tassell's book is simple and direct. The students appreciate that." Kathy Burnette, Media Specialist.
"I totally and fully supported your book (read it last June and immediately knew it would be
a hit with our kids...as I used to teach self-contained 6th grade for
about ten years) and was so excited we could get the REAL person here
for our kids!! Thanks again!"
Sheryll Harper, Principal Discovery Middle
“I like your book, even though it’s not the general genre that I read. I really like how descriptive you were, it made things a lot more entertaining. Your presentation was very funny. It was nice that for once, even though you did the “little kid version”, that you didn’t treat sixth graders like they were, eight, as most presenters do. It wasn’t jut like “don’t bully, blah blah blah blah,” and other things we’ve heard a million times. You got our attention."

“I thought the meeting today with the other students was to die for funny. What you said in there was funny and true. My favorite character in the book was Kayla because she seems to me the one who brings out all the emotion in Handy that makes him so funny. As a girl, like most, I am incredibly shy. I’m afraid of what people will say about me and won’t want to be my friend. So, what you said today really helped me overcome that fear and for that I thank you.”
Erin H. sixth grade student Discover Middle
"Thank you for such great presentations. Our kids really loved your talks. I hope we see a change in attitude in some of the kids.
We are definitely going to buy some more books. Many of the kids want one for themselves. I have called Patty and arranged to get them ordered. I was wondering if we can somehow get them signed by you. I know we talked briefly about it. If you can think of a way to do this, please let me know."

I wanted to let you know that I really enjoyed your bullying seminar. I enjoyed it so much that I was wondering if I could have a copy of your PowerPoint?

"I hope that you made it home OK, and your daughter is doing much better. I know how hard it was for you to have to come here and leave her while she was sick. I appreciate your sacrifice. I knew that our kids would have a great time with what you present. They had a ball, and will not soon forget you, your comedy, and presentation on bullying. I'll bet most will remember this event as long as they live. I wanted to know if you minded giving me an address that I could send something to you. E-mail me back when you get a chance, and if you don't mind sharing your address, or at least one that I can mail to. I hope to see you again in concert, and hope that you will consider coming back to our county in the future if opportunity arises."
