The picture book debut by Katherine Hannigan, the award-winning, bestselling author of Ida B, introduces the effervescent Gwendolyn Grace, an alligator with a new sibling and only one thing on her mind—having fun! Pitch-perfect and a great choice for fans of Pete the Cat and the Pigeon books by Mo Willems.

Gwendolyn Grace, a preschool alligator in a pink tutu, wants to play. But her mother insists that she pipe down, because the baby is trying to sleep. Gwendolyn Grace can't quite believe it, and in this funny call-and-response, all dialogue and action picture book, she questions her mother relentlessly about what is allowed (not much) and not allowed (a lot). It all ends happily, though, when Mom, baby, and Gwendolyn Grace play a noisy game together. Lots of drama, lots of noise, and lots of funny moments make this picture book debut an ideal choice for story times and for families with new siblings.

Editorial Reviews

“A small delight, cunningly illustrated by Hannigan’s own sweet watercolors, reminiscent of Beatrix Potter’s works.”
