Alan the Alligator is known throughout the jungle for being scary and it’s all because of his big, scary teeth. Each morning he spends ages cleaning his teeth and practising his scariest faces, before going through the jungle making all the jungle babies leap from their lilypads and tumble from the trees. No one knows Alan’s terrible secret – his terrifying teeth are false! But Barry the Beaver stumbles across the truth and
the animals decide it’s time Alan put his skills for being scary to better use.
A dark tropical palette and a variety of paint and pencil techniques make this book busy, bold and beautiful. Children will howl (like monkeys) at the sight of poor, toothless Alan and the final page will have everyone in fits of giggles. Instantly appealing, undeniably hilarious and totally brilliant – there’s really nothing that children won’t love here. Bravo Jarvis!
