Product Description

Review

Brilliantly written and illustrated (Love It)

[A] well-crafted story about facing down fear (The Guardian)

An amusing and tension-filled tale that turns tail and runs on adrenaline power until the very end (The Lady)

This is a class act (Times Educational Supplement)

A great read aloud and a good giggle (Publishers Weekly)

An extremely well written and well designed picture book which will be relished by both young children and the adults who share it with them (Carousel)

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.

Book Description

When the alligator came creeping, creeping up the stairs, were the children scared? You bet they were!

Format: Paperback
What a fantastic book - I can't believe it isn't more well know as it should be! In itself it is a great fun read with the repetition children love (were the children scared) and a story that develops right from the first cover through to the back page that my son loves.

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!

My 5 year old started school last September and this was one of the many books in his classroom, which he and quite a few of his classmates have taken a liking to, so much so that it is a race in the morning to see who gets the book first! I sat there the one morning and read it with him and thought it was a thoroughly fantastic book, hence why I then ordered it for him and have one very happy boy indeed. It has repetition that children love and the illustrations are great. All in all it is one great book, and I would definitely recommend it.

My 3 year old loves this book. Although a scary "croc" he loves the repitition and the fact that in the end its the croc who is scared of the children.Its a good book for getting children to learn not to be scared and to face up to their fears.

Really, really appealing. The children conquer their fear of an alligator and chase it down a hole! The way the book is written makes this a brilliant-to-read tale.
