SNAPPSY THE ALLIGATOR AND HIS BEST FRIEND FOREVER (PROBABLY) return to books October 3. In their latest adventure, Snappsy and his loyal narrator discover the trials and error of friendship. You see, all Snappsy wants is a quiet evening to himself, but this pesky chicken (who insists he’s Snappsy’s best friend) won’t leave him alone. Friendship bracelets? Matching shirts? The sleepover of the century? Snappsy did not ask for any of this, but he might just be surprised at how nice it can be to have a friend.
With humor and sympathy, this giggle-inducing read aloud illuminates a situation we have all faced at some point—how sometimes, when we want a best friend so badly, we can come on too strong and overstep boundaries—as well as how magical it can feel when we get friendship right. Packed with silly, mischievous fun, kids won’t be able to hold back the laughs when reading this hilarious, pitch-perfect sequel to one of the funniest books of 2016.
There aren’t too many children’s books that have adult appeal as well. The story-line, illustrations and flat out humor will have parents and children laughing out loud together and for different reasons. The characters are hilarious and the illustrations bring the story-line home and enhance it with great detail. We loved this book so much we had to go out and find the debut book from 2016.
