Mo Willems New Series-Amanda and Her Alligator


My daughter is a huge fan of the Piggie and Elephant books from Mo Willems and has also enjoyed the Knuffle Bunny books so I was really excited to see that Mo Willems is coming out with a new series next month!  Here’s the description from the HarperCollins website:

6½ stories about 2 surprising friends.

Having a stuffed alligator for a best friend can be surprising.

Sometimes Amanda surprises her alligator with books. Sometimes Alligator surprises Amanda by eating them.

But what happens when Amanda brings home a special—and not entirely welcome—surprise? The result might be unexpected indeed.

Beloved author-illustrator Mo Willems has created a funny and tender portrait of friendship that readers of any age will love.

It will be available April 26.  I cannot wait to check it out.

    Looks cute. Who doesn’t love a ‘gator? I don’t think I really got into reading series until 2nd grade or so (Nancy Drew and my quest to find the original 50 books in hardcover). That was shortly followed by my Baby Sitters Club obsession, which was somewhat curious since I may have baby-sat once during my teen/tween years.

    Well this makes me insanely excited! My boys cannot get enough of Elephant and Piggie. I hope Amanda and Her Alligator has the same Mo magic.
