Fearsome! Ferocious! Fake?

A review of Alan's Big, Scary Teeth by Peter Jarvis

Alan the Alligator LOVES being scary. He and his big, scary teeth make all the animals in the jungle run for cover. Snap, Snap, SNAP! But Alan has a secret... his big scary snappers... are FAKE! What will Alan do when his secret is revealed? How will he ever overcome his embarrassment and dismay that he is no longer scary? A hilarious read aloud for preschool and school agers alike, this book gets better and better on every read. With brilliant, colorful illustrations, and a super silly surprise at the end, this charming book also is great commentary on how much better it is to have friends in the jungle rather than being a bully.
