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.

No more swinging and singing from the chandeliors, banging on the pots and pans or bouncing on the bed for Gwendolyn Grace! Gwendolyn has just received a new family member…a small and sleepy Alligator Baby who is putting a damper on all her wild times! Gwendolyn’s Mommy asks her to try and stay calm and play quietly while the baby is sleeping. Will Gwendolyn’s fun end with the new baby’s arrival? Bright and vibrant illustrations in a palette of yello, green and pink portray the friendliest and most fun alligators. Gwendolyn’s response to the call-out boxes from Mommy out of scene are filled with humor, her expressions with a lot of real child emotion, and her adventures are a silly but real-life treat. This is a great book to read to your child that will become a future big sis or big bro! It tells an important lesson about being respectful to a new baby’s needs while showing them that it doesn’t mean the fun and laughter will come to an end...
