A hilarious book about friendship, with a reptilian twist.
Very Boring Alligator came one day to play
but he stay stay stayed
and HE WOULDN'T GO AWAY.
Nothing will make this boring gator leave: saying "pretty please" doesn't do it; even making heebie jeebie eyes doesn't help. Very Boring Alligator just doesn't seem to get it. The Gator Cops are called in to assist--but then THEY won't go away. With all these unwanted guests romping on the couch, somebody will have to take charge! Luckily, a very resourceful little girl is ready to put her foot down . . .
Jean Gralley's offbeat sense of humor and wonderfully animated illustrations turn an awkward social situation into a very entertaining tale.
