See You Later, Alligator
by Sally Hopgood (Author), Emma Levey (Illustrator)
A departing tortoise has his bags packed and is almost ready to set out on an adventure, but he can’t leave until he says good-bye to each of his animal friends. The tortoise stops for every last timid mouse and bumblebee, shouting his rhyming good-byes, making you wonder if, perhaps, he’s stalling the start of his trip.
His animal friends appear startled as he suddenly pops up on each page to say adieu—especially the perplexed rhinoceros the tortoise mistakes for a unicorn! With each farewell, the tortoise’s good-byes get sillier and more creative. When will the good-byes end and the adventure begin?
My kids love See You Later, Alligator by Sally Hopgood! A departing tortoise has his bags packed and is almost ready to set out on an adventure, but he can’t leave until he says good-bye to each of his animal friends. Each goodbye gets sillier and sillier and you begin to wonder when the good-byes will end and the adventure begin. The illustrations are awesomely entertaining so much so that my kids love just sitting and looking at the book. In my house we love silly books so this is definitely one of our favorites. My kids also love animals as do most so they loving seeing the different animals on each page. I absolutely love the way this book is written and highly recommend you all add this book to your child's library!
