Reviews

Jolly drawings and a playful rhyming scheme. Great fun. * Daily Telegraph * Fans will definitely want to try this sequel. * Bookbag * Using elements of rhythm and rhyme as well as an enjoyably predicable question-and-answer refrain the text maintains a playful tone beneath the scary details... Expressive line drawings, brightened with watercolour washes, illustrate the story with wit and style... good fun. * Booklist * Praise for Snip Snap!:Nick Maland's clever perspectives make the alligator increasingly alarming as he swells to fill more and more of the page in this well-created story of facing down fear. * The Guardian *
