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)
Winner of Blue Parent's Choice Award.
When the alligator came creeping, creeping up the stairs, were the children scared? You bet they were!See all Product Description

Aside from the obvious enjoyment we get out of reading the book it does have a fantastic message which has been a great help in ridding both his bedroom and (those of his friends) of "night time monsters". The synopsis of the book being that the aligator gets closer and closer to the children and then "the children decide they've had enough of all this scary aligator stuff and shout - Aligator you get out. Was the Aligator scared - YOU BET IT WAS" all the way back to its drain. After reading the book its an easy suggestion to try shouting at our "monsters" and watch them tumble down the stairs and out of the front door like the crocodile. Thouroughly recommended!
