Title: See You Later, Alligator
Author: Sally Hopgood
Illustrator: Emma Levey
Tortoise wants to say goodbye to the animals in the zoo before he sets off on an adventure. But there are so many animals, saying goodbye is an adventure in itself. The final spread brings the story together (I won’t spoil the ending here, though you may have guessed already!).
The rhymes throughout are excellent. But there was one spread where the book was in danger of making the story fit the rhyme. However, Emma’s brilliant illustration took the humour to the next level, don’t you agree???
This humorous rhyming picture book lends itself to the younger reader as they know what is coming with the simple but clever alternative ways of saying goodbye.
Picture Book Perfect Rating:
