About this deal

It’s a fantastic independent book seller that will actually be responsive and select appropriate books for you.

A jungly jaunt that’s sure to bring Alan-sized smiles to the faces of listeners (not to mention the occasional adult reader aloud) and I love those vibrant, energetic scenes and some of the small details are real giggle-inducers.

I have even talked the head into a little revamp of the library so that we can display them properly! An alligator who snaps, becomes an alligator who th-naps in this hilarious, heart-warming story of making new friends and discovering who you really are.

You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice. But after a long day of scaring, Alan likes nothing better than to enjoy the crossword, run a warm mud bath, and take out his teeth, which nobody else knows are false. Digitally colored illustrations in pencil, chalk, and paint portray Alan as more of a goofball than a menace, while the jungle animals blend into the background--a good precaution with an alligator neighbor.

Instantly appealing, undeniably hilarious and totally brilliant – there’s really nothing that children won’t love here. I am a children's dentist and read this book to young children when I undertake oral health promotion visits. Jarvis is an illustrator and animator who has worked as both a record jacket designer and an animation director. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. You guys were so fab and Dawn was such a lovely presence in the schools - I will absolutely be in touch next time I'm in your neck of the woods.

A hilarious, cautionary tale with a wonderful conclusion on kindness, this imaginative story will have kids in stitches. This strong debut picture book will leave young listeners and librarians alike hungry for the author's next offering. There was just the right amount of choice to suit everyone without being overwhelming and I received comments from parents and staff about the quality of books offered compared to previous sales which have always been based around current crazes and well known celebrity authors. Jarvis ( Lazy Dave ) strikes a brisk, matter-of-fact tone that's spot-on for his overconfident, inconsiderate hero, and he ties up the loose ends of the story with a clever best-of-both-worlds twist.

This book invites interaction with the story and plenty of action and noise as Alan makes his way through the jungle and on to a new identity. Bookwagon recommends this picture book for reading aloud, laughing over together, getting to know well and gifting too. Your words, like your reviews, bring books to life and give them a voice before the front cover is even turned. A goofy and lonely denizen of the jungle has just one talent -- scaring other creatures with his big, scary teeth!

This experience has been fantastic primarily for the children, the school and also for me (professionally). The reformation of a bully is a familiar story, but Alan's version is nicely told, and the eventual outcome is especially enjoyable. They are made more wide eyed and reactive after Alan, who comes from a long line of scary alligators, has finished ‘…polishing his scales, sharpening his nails and brushing each of his big, scary teeth’ ready to begin his morning scaring…. All the children love hearing this story, the story is very funny and the pictures and vivid and colourful. Yourself and Bob are much cherished in our booky world and I personally really appreciate everything that you do.A goofy comedy of self-discovery, witty, warm-hearted storytelling and bright graphic art will make this (and Alan! This is a good title for primary collections and collections that need strong, artistic storytelling on their shelves. Jarvis studied graphic design and previously worked as both a record sleeve designer and an animation director before becoming a children's book illustrator.
