When an alligator and her baby came creeping, creeping into the playground, were the people scared? You bet they were!

The Bookbag

Critic Reviews
Praise for Snip Snap!: 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 Fans will definitely want to try this sequel. Bookbag Jolly drawings and a playful rhyming scheme. Great fun. Daily Telegraph
