about the book....
This unforgettable introduction to a charismatic kid heroine also marks the dazzling debut of an extraordinary new artistic talent!
Note to self: If your teacher tells you to bring something from nature for show-and-tell, she does not want you to bring an alligator! But nothing will stop Magnolia, who's determined to have the best show-and-tell of all--until her reptilian rapscallion starts getting her into some major trouble. Now it's up to Magnolia to find a way to send this troublemaker home--but what could possibly scare an alligator away?
With a highly entertaining storyline and fabulous illustrations that will at a minimum leave your children smiling, "If You Ever Want to Bring an Alligator to School, DON'T!" is an absolute winner in our household. When I asked my children what sort of rating I should award this book, it was simply unanimous. A 5 out of 5 stars was a must. Well, who am I to argue with their literary expertise? 5 out of 5 stars it is!
