Book on tattling?

The tattling in my class is driving me nuts. Does anyone have a good children's book on the difference between telling something important and just tattling?

Our Kindergarten teacher used A Bad Case of Tattle Tongue by Julia Cook. She said it worked! Best of luck.

Armadillo Tattletale by Ketteman is a funny story that the my K4 children love to hear.

Toby the Tattle Turtle

This year's class has been driving me nuts with the tattling also! I got one of the $5 Eric Carle turtles they have at Kohl's right now. He sits on my desk, and his name is "Toby the Tattle Turtle." When the kids are having a day where they seem to be tattling a LOT, I have them talk to the turtle.
We've had many discussions about good and bad tattles. They know that if it's an emergency or someone is hurt, those are the things they need to come to me about. It's the "she blinked at ME!" tattles I direct to Toby.
