I received Snappsy The Alligator (Did Not Ask to Be in This Book) to facilitate this review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
As a parent, I enjoy getting my daughter interested in reading books. Since she is in Kindergarten, she is working on her reading comprehension skills. As a result, she loves it when I read a book out loud.
Snappsy The Alligator (Did Not Ask to Be in This Book), written by Julie Falatko and illustrated by Tim Miller, is a great story. This unique tale will keep your children entertained until the very last page.
While Snappsy is enjoying a perfectly ordinary day, the narrator decides that his life is too boring. So, he turns Snappsy’s normal, everyday occurrences into more adventurous activities.
When Snappsy realizes that the narrator is weaving a tale, he does his best to get the real story across to the reader. However, he isn’t too successful.
In the end, the narrator is able to influence Snappsy. Instead of spending the day cleaning his house, he decides to throw a party. Everyone has a great time.
During the party, a last minute surprise guest makes an appearance. You will have to check out the book to find out more!
My daughter loved this book. She thought it was hilarious. We enjoyed spending time reading it again and again. For even more entertainment, we took turns being the narrator and making up our own stories about Snappsy.

On the white paper draw his eyes.
