Snappsy the Alligator (Did Not Ask to Be in This Book)
Snappsy is walking, and the narrator is annoying. He keeps saying what is in the illustrations. Snappsy tells the narrator he is horrible. The narrator changes the story and calls Snappsy a “big, mean alligator” and says he is hunting birds and bunnies. He is really going to the grocery store. The narrator says Snappsy is only buying food that starts with the letter P. Snappsy goes home and goes inside. The narrator says Snappsy is really boring. (Snappsy and the narrator are mean to each other.)
Snappsy plans a party. The party is good, and the narrator wants to come. Snappsy lets him come in. The narrator is a chicken. (I don’t like the narrator. He’s self-centered. He says he’s the only one who knows how to dance.) My favorite guests are the hippo and the mouse making a funny face. I like the duck too. This book has a lot of animals in it. I like the illustrations better than the story. The story is unusual. I like that. Usually the narrator just goes along with things. In this book, it’s not what anyone would expect from a narrator.
