Alligator: The Play by Theresa Breslin

The Lovereading4Kids comment

A gripping story which catches the roller-coaster that Sam is on when he finds he has acquired an alligator as a pet! How on earth is Sam going to manage such a ferocious and hungry creature? The only place he can think to hide it in is Sam’s lock-up. And when a burglar tries to steal Sam’s car, it turns out to be a very good choice indeed. Simply written and with a strong storyline, this is an excellent, dyslexia friendly story.


Alligator: The Play by Theresa Breslin

A brand new edition of this hilarious play from Carnegie Medal-winning author Theresa Breslin. Jono has a problem. He didn't mean to buy an alligator, it just sort of happened. And now his mum is going to kill him - if the alligator doesn't get there first! Laugh-out-loud comedy adapted from the best-selling original novel by a well-loved author. A play with 8 parts, for older children but accessible to even the most struggling reader.

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
