The Lovereading4Kids comment
Julia Eccleshare's Book of the Month, February 2016 Glorious illustrations tell this story that is both nicely scary and neatly resolved. Everyone knows that alligators are scary! Right? Alan comes from a long line of scary alligators and, with his HUGE white and sharply-pointed teeth he has a happy time scaring all the other creatures in the pond. Alan takes great care of his teeth; he brushes them for at least ten minutes a day so that they look super-sharp and frightening. But, what the other creatures don’t know is that Alan has a very big secret…What will Alan do when everyone finds out? ~ Julia Eccleshare

- George Haine, age 3 - 'It is nice and funny. My best bit is when he is in the water lying long on his back. He goes 'SNAP, SNAP!''
Alan's Big, Scary Teeth by Jarvis
Meet Alan, an alligator with a secret. Famed for his big, scary teeth, he sneaks into the jungle every day to scare the jungle animals ...
I'm big, scary Alan! Fear my razor-sharp teeth! But after a long day of scaring, Alan likes nothing better than to run a warm mud bath and take out his false teeth, which nobody knows about! That is, until his teeth go missing. What will Alan do now? Scaring is the only thing he knows how to do! Can he still be scary without them? A goofy comedy of self-discovery, witty, warm-hearted storytelling and bright graphic art will make this (and Alan!) a firm children's book favourite.
's Big Scary Teeth an instant hit with tiddlers, and yep even cynical tweenies will still giggle when Alan appears on the Savannah, ready to savage everyone with his gummy grin! Truly excellent! Read It, Daddy! A dark tropical palette and a variety of paint and pencil techniques make this book busy, bold and beautiful. Children will howl (like monkeys) at the sight of poor, toothless Alan and the final page will have everyone in fits of giggles. Instantly appealing, undeniably hilarious and totally brilliant - there's really nothing that children won't love here. Books for Keeps This is a shop favourite which is perfect for reading aloud. IBW Children's Book Guide, The Bookseller Like the best picture books, it is a pleasingly simple story, set in a faraway place, with a lot to say to young readers. This lovely picture book will be enjoyed by the very young and the not so young alike. School Library Association'
