Rated 5 out of 5 by from Full of humour and sweetness This is a delightful collection of stories. Each story is hilarious and unique, yet each story builds on the last one to set up some really funny moments, and a sweet friendship between Amanda and her alligator. I laughed out loud. It's a unique and fun book - one of my favourites. A Mo Willems underrated gem! #plumreview
