This is a mildly scary story about an alligator that finds its way into a house of children and is trying to eat them. The children become more and more anxious as the alligator gets closer and closer. When the alligator is finally upon them, the children become brave and tell it to get out! The alligator becomes scared at this point, and runs out of the house and all of the way home.
There is a lot of opportunity to talk with children about the story and what might happen next. The pictures are large and colorful and great for groups of children.
