Snappsy the Alligator and His Best Friend Forever (Probably)
Author: Julie Falatko
Illustrator: Tim Miller
Publisher: Viking Children’s Books
Release Date: October 3, 2017
Goodreads Synopsis: Snappsy the alligator wants nothing more than a quiet evening alone, but a pesky chicken who insists he’s Snappsy’s best friend won’t leave him alone. Friendship bracelets? Matching shirts? The sleepover of the century? Snappsy did not ask for any of the activities this chicken – his best friend forever? – is planning.
This was such a cute read! My daughter had so much fun getting to see the interactions between Snappsy and Bert. She also had a lot to say about how those characters reminded her of Spongebob and Squidward, adding to her love for the book. It did have a little bit of that quality, but with more to it as Bert didn’t have a Patrick to keep him from constantly being at Snappsy’s side lol.
I haven’t read the first book with Snappsy, but after this one I’ll definitely be getting it for my daughter as she’ll probably like it just as much. This one had a good amount of cuteness, mixed with lots of funny moments, and a good lesson for the little ones. Don’t doubt the first one probably has that also. I thought the illustrations were just as cute as the story and my daughter definitely agreed.
I also saw on the author’s page that she has a few more books out, along with others being released in 2018, so I will be looking into getting those also. I know my daughter will probably like those just as much as she liked this one, especially if they have the same humor and colorful characters as those in this book.
