About this deal

However, Alan’s ‘Snap Snap Toothpaste’ hides a truth that no one in the animal kingdom, terrified by Alan, should ever discover – should they? Instantly appealing, undeniably hilarious and totally brilliant – there’s really nothing that children won’t love here.

busy pictures, and really inventive, reader appealing ideas, he has shaken up the children’s picture book world, offering something a little more intelligent and bewitching.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…. 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 guys are such a force for good and I am a passionate supporter of Indie booksellers, so I'm so happy this worked out well (I'd love to know how many books were sold if you have it to hand - it felt like quite a lot! This is a good title for primary collections and collections that need strong, artistic storytelling on their shelves. Jarvis is an illustrator and animator who has worked as both a record jacket designer and an animation director. 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!Love this - my baby is only 6 months old but the vivid illustrations capture his attention, the story and imagery is interesting enough that I don't get bored (which I admit can be a problem with me and baby books) and it's really fun for us to go through with him even now - I'm sure he'll continue to enjoy this on different levels as he grows up. Bookwagon recommends this picture book for reading aloud, laughing over together, getting to know well and gifting too. Like the best picture books, it is a pleasingly simple story, set in a faraway place, with a lot to say to young readers. All the children love hearing this story, the story is very funny and the pictures and vivid and colourful. Children will howl (like monkeys) at the sight of poor, toothless Alan and the final page will have everyone in fits of giggles.

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. Witty, charming, and playful storytelling will have preschoolers cheering for Alan as he discovers a new way to fit in. 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.I haven't charted out my visits for the summer term, but I'm sure there are several in the south) and thanks so much for being so fantastic! 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. 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. It’s true that they keep things in the jungle running exactly as Alan’s always wanted them, with everyone doing as he bids.
