Snappsy the alligator is trying to go about his very ordinary day when a pesky narrator steps in to spice up the story with slanderous claims. Is Snappsy making crafty plans? Is he prowling for defenseless birds and soft, fuzzy bunnies? Is Snappsy a big, mean alligator who’s obsessed with snack foods that start with the letter P? It’s no wonder Snappsy won't invite the narrator to his party! 
Snappsy the Alligator (Did Not Ask to Be in This Book) is an irreverent look at storytelling, friendship, and creative differences from a pair of rising stars in the picture book world.

Snappsy the Alligator (Did Not Ask to Be in This Book!) is a very fun story to read. I think I enjoyed reading it aloud as much as my girls enjoyed listening to the story. This book is about an alligator, living his life, and a narrator telling us what the alligator is doing. Part of the reason this story is so hilarious is due to the fact that the alligator is also talking to the reader. Telling us what is really going on, and arguing with the narrator. This story is funny and very entertaining. We enjoyed it very much. I highly recommend checking it out!
