Getting ready for the day is hard for a little alligator with boundless energy and imagination.It's time to get dressed and go the park, but Alfie is still in his pajamas. Putting on clothes seems like the least appealing thing to do for this energetic and curious little alligator, especially when there are so many amusing distractions. And Alfie, like all preschoolers, is both easily sidetracked and easily entertained. Sparely written and whimsically illustrated in watercolor and collage, this is a delightful observation of the life of a small child, perfect for early-morning sharing.
Author and illustrator Anna Walker has won numerous children's book design and writing awards in her native Australia. The artwork and stories she's created in her Melbourne studio have reached young readers worldwide. Visit her online at, on Twitter @basementbird and on Instagram @_annawalker_.
