Synopsis

Snip, Snap Alligator! by Mara Bergman

Reminiscent of We're Going on a Bear Hunt, this story is an absolute delight to read aloud, enabling a child to really join in. An alligator is creeping up the stairs, slithering down the hall and swishing and swooshing its tremendous tail and the children are very scared. Until they decide they've had enough of all this scary alligator stuff! And they banish him back to where he came from. Beautifully designed and illustrated, this reissue of the award-winning picture book Snip Snap! is a real treat!

Reviews

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 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
