Bookwagon recommends this picture book for reading aloud, laughing over together, getting to know well and gifting too. Digitally colored illustrations in pencil, chalk, and paint portray Alan as more of a goofball than a menace, while the jungle animals blend into the background--a good precaution with an alligator neighbor. Witty, charming, and playful storytelling will have preschoolers cheering for Alan as he discovers a new way to fit in.

The reformation of a bully is a familiar story, but Alan's version is nicely told, and the eventual outcome is especially enjoyable. It’s true that they keep things in the jungle running exactly as Alan’s always wanted them, with everyone doing as he bids.A goofy and lonely denizen of the jungle has just one talent -- scaring other creatures with his big, scary teeth! This experience has been fantastic primarily for the children, the school and also for me (professionally). Jarvis ( Lazy Dave ) strikes a brisk, matter-of-fact tone that's spot-on for his overconfident, inconsiderate hero, and he ties up the loose ends of the story with a clever best-of-both-worlds twist. Yesterday a parent came over to tell me how impressed she was by the book fair and that you did a fabulous job of selling the books to the children first. A hilarious, cautionary tale with a wonderful conclusion on kindness, this imaginative story will have kids in stitches.

The witty Jarvis ("Lazy Dave") makes all the right moves, drawing Alan's jungle world with his usual loose, jagged charm. All the children love hearing this story, the story is very funny and the pictures and vivid and colourful. It’s a fantastic independent book seller that will actually be responsive and select appropriate books for you. Love this - my baby is only 6 months old but the vivid illustrations capture his attention, the story and imagery is interesting enough that I don't get bored (which I admit can be a problem with me and baby books) and it's really fun for us to go through with him even now - I'm sure he'll continue to enjoy this on different levels as he grows up. I have even talked the head into a little revamp of the library so that we can display them properly!An alligator who snaps , becomes an alligator who th-naps in this hilarious, heart-warming story of making new friends and discovering who you really are.

You guys are such a force for good and I am a passionate supporter of Indie booksellers, so I'm so happy this worked out well (I'd love to know how many books were sold if you have it to hand - it felt like quite a lot! A goofy comedy of self-discovery, witty, warm-hearted storytelling and bright graphic art will make this (and Alan! They are made more wide eyed and reactive after Alan, who comes from a long line of scary alligators, has finished ‘…polishing his scales, sharpening his nails and brushing each of his big, scary teeth’ ready to begin his morning scaring…. This book invites interaction with the story and plenty of action and noise as Alan makes his way through the jungle and on to a new identity.A jungly jaunt that’s sure to bring Alan-sized smiles to the faces of listeners (not to mention the occasional adult reader aloud) and I love those vibrant, energetic scenes and some of the small details are real giggle-inducers.
