9780062004000: Hooray for Amanda & Her Alligator!

6˝ stories about 2 surprising friends.

Having a stuffed alligator for a best friend can be surprising.

Sometimes Amanda surprises her alligator with books. Sometimes Alligator surprises Amanda by eating them.

But what happens when Amanda brings home a special—and not entirely welcome—surprise? The result might be unexpected indeed.

Beloved author-illustrator Mo Willems has created a funny and tender portrait of friendship that readers of any age will love.

Review:

“Amusing and heartwarming, it will leave Willems’s fans totally satisfied.” (School Library Journal (starred review))

“Six and a half short stories make up this expertly paced page-turner about a girl and her toy alligator, laced with the kid-centric humor on which Willems has built his career. ” (Publishers Weekly (starred review))

“The pacing, word volume and wide trim size are all inviting and encouraging, bringing readers close to the cozy friendship between Amanda and her impatient stuffed friend. ” (Kirkus Reviews (starred review))

“Willems knows how to keep things interesting and his audience engaged.” (Horn Book (starred review))

“Willems may not have the market cornered on best friends, but few do them better.” (ALA Booklist)

“This is a perfect stealth early reader, a story that will begin as a chapter-by-chapter readaloud and then get converted by the audience when experience and determination make it time to fly solo. ” (Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books)
