This strong debut picture book will leave young listeners and librarians alike hungry for the author’s next offering. A perfect choice for storytime. Alan agreed and he took up a variety of roles that pleased the animals and the only time he was scary was when he told Scary Stories to them. And he even lent Barry the Beaver his scary teeth on occasions ... Barry did look a sight! I liked Alan as a character - he's the kind of funny, "bad guy" who turns good and ends up having silly things happen to him; these kind of characters are particularly well received in this house. The other creatures and critters are also really colourful, which I liked because it's a good conversation starter, although not especially true to form (there is a blue beaver for instance) - this didn't matter to me though. I thought the story flowed so well, and made perfect sense to small readers, which isn't always the case with the sillier types of stories. The witty Jarvis (“Lazy Dave”) makes all the right moves, drawing Alan’s jungle world with his usual loose, jagged charm. What examples can you find to support that the animals wanted to be Alan’s friends but were too scared of him and his teeth.

De illustraties waren echt leuk, en mooi, en ik kon gewoon tijden naar de pagina’s kijken. Zo lekker kleurrijk ook! Alan the Crocodile likes to scare the other animals in the jungle. It’s all he knows how to do. Every morning he polishes his scales, sharpens his nails, brushes each of his teeth for ten minutes and practices his frightening faces in the mirror, then he sets off to go and do some scaring. Returning home later that day filled with joy. PreS-Gr 1—Alan the alligator fancies himself to be the most fearsome creature in the jungle, but he's hiding a secret that could change his whole image. Every day, he polishes his scales, brushes his scary teeth one by one, and practices his frightening faces in the mirror. Then, he sneaks up on the frogs, monkeys, and parrots and scares them silly. At the end of the day, Alan luxuriates in his victorious scare tactics, but eventually he has to get real with himself; Alan has false teeth! He keeps his secret safe by storing his chompers in a special hiding place where Barry the Beaver eventually finds them by mistake. When Alan wakes up to find his teeth are missing, he attempts to launch his scaring spree as usual but is laughed at by the other animals. This makes him cry. Alan's wails continue through the night, and by morning all of the animals are on board to return his teeth, though they have drafted a few rules for how he can use them moving forward. Vibrant pencil, chalk, and paint illustrations colored digitally are preschool-friendly and maximize the humor in the text by providing little details for readers to delight in, such as Alan's taste in reading materials and his full line of grooming products. The simple yet effective expressions the animals display throughout the story are no doubt inspired by the author's work in animation, which contributes to this story's success as a read-aloud. This strong debut picture book will leave young listeners and librarians alike hungry for the author's next offering. VERDICT A perfect choice for storytime.—Samantha Lumetta, Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County, OH School Library Journal The illustrations in this book are bright and colorful, and the characters are expressive, making it easy for children to engage with the story. The illustrations display a jungle and many different animals for children to see. The text is also easy to read and follow along, making it a great choice for children who are just starting to read on their own. Everyday after a long day of scaring he returned home to complete the crossword in 'Jungle Times' and, more importantly, to take out his false teeth. And nobody knew that he wore false teeth so he always put them safely away in his secret hiding place.

Every morning after polishing his scary teeth and practising his scary looks in the mirror he went into the jungle for his morning round of scaring. 'I love being scary,' he cried as he scared all the animals in the jungle. The illustrations are brilliant. I love the scary faces that Alan pulls. I also love the little items dotted around the images. Children might not notice them, but I’m sure the adults reading the book will – Eau De Gator perfume, The Jungle Times newspaper, etc. A hilarious, cautionary tale with a wonderful conclusion on kindness, this imaginative story will have kids in stitches. Marc in de latere stukjes was wel heel aardig, en we vinden ook uit waarom hij zo gemeen doet (tuurlijk het is al een ding met dat geheim, maar als je dat ook nog eens hebt, dan kan ik me voorstellen dat je misschien iedereen zo laat schrikken).

However, Alan has a secret. His big teeth are not real, they are false. When he loses his teeth he doesn’t know what he will do as all he knows how is scaring the animals. Do you think they will still be frightened of a toothless Crocodile?Ik zag deze in de boekenhandel en de titel sprak me meteen aan. Ik wilde wel weten hoe gevaarlijk die tanden van Marc nou waren, de cover zag er mooi en kleurrijk uit, en toen die blurb. Tja, toen wilde ik ook nog weten wat nou dat Grote Geheim is.

This is great for developing children’s gross motor and fine motor skills, sensory development, and interest in making and exploring marks. The media used in this book is colored crayon, it is not polished or reinforced by a computer drawing program. This benefits in making the book appear more personal and therefore more meaningful to the reader from the author.
