About this item

Description



About the Book



A child provides insights, based on personal experience, into everything that can go wrong if one brings an alligator to school for show-and-tell.



Book Synopsis



The first hilarious story in the New York Times bestselling Magnolia Says DON'T! series about a charismatic kid who's got a terrific knack for terrible ideas!

Note to self: If your teacher tells you to bring something from nature for show-and-tell, she does not want you to bring an alligator! But nothing will stop Magnolia, who's determined to have the best show-and-tell of all--until her reptilian rapscallion starts getting her into some major trouble. Now it's up to Magnolia to find a way to send this troublemaker home--but what could possibly scare an alligator away?



Review Quotes



Praise for If You Ever Want to Bring an Alligator to School, Don't!
A 2018-2019 California Young Reader Medal Nominee
"Parsley's digitally created illustrations brim with energy and just-edgy-enough humor... and the well-chosen school-day details in both the artwork and text... deliver a steady stream of laughs."--Publishers Weekly

"Children are likely to get a kick out of Magnolia's not-quite-contrite tone and the colorful chaos her giant pet creates."--New York Times

"Elise Parsley's jaunty second-person narration is matched by comically expressive...artwork that seems to shout from the page."--Wall Street Journal

"This is an engaging debut picture book [that] will appeal to a wide age range. Here's hoping for more adventures with Magnolia!"--School Library Journal

"Vibrant, imaginative, and spot-on funny."--Boing Boing, -

This book is hilarious! I love reading it, my three year old loves it and even my one year old enjoys it! The illustrations are so detailed and the narrative is different and funny. I’m sure we’ll enjoy this one for years to come.
