Snappsy (begrudgingly!) returns in this clever and hilarious follow-up to the critically-acclaimed Snappsy the Alligator (Did Not Ask to Be in This Book).
I have to say that as an introvert, I related to Snappsy the Alligator as I read this story with my girls. I like peace and quiet, but I like to hang out with friends – on my own time and decision. Some people get that, most people don’t – so my closest friends are the ones who GET me. Need help with a school baking item? I’m there! Want to me to hang out at a club full of people I don’t know? No thanks. I have a full time job and two little kids and I NEED my space and ME time. You can be best friends with someone and only make plans once a month. It’s just how some people roll, or in this case, it’s how some alligator’s roll!
Snappsy the alligator wants nothing more than a quiet evening to himself, but a pesky chicken who insists he’s Snappsy’s best friend won’t leave him alone. Friendship bracelets? Matching shirts? The sleepover of the century? Snappsy did not ask for any of the activities the chicken—his best friend forever?—is planning. This pitch-perfect sequel to Snappsy the Alligator (Did Not Ask to Be in This Book) explores all the ways we get friendship wrong (and why it feels so magical when we get it right!).
