Kirkus & TOKNY love HOORAY FOR AMANDA AND HER ALLIGATOR!



Kirkus Reviews has given the upcoming Hooray for Amanda and Her Alligator! its second starred review, calling it:

"An exploration of the nature of surprises between good friends...Silly, warm and inviting, the six-and-1/2 short episodic chapters are just right for reading aloud as well as for beginning readers who are steady on their reading feet."

Thanks Kirkus!


TimeOut KIDS NY makes Hooray for Amanda and Her Alligator! their Picture Book Pick, saying:

"Alligator somehow finds the courage to be generous in the winning last chapter of the book, which captures the drama of everyday moments with typical Willems panache. Yes, we hope to see you later, Alligator."
