Bedtime has never been more wild! Good Night, Alligator is sure to wear kids out before they are gently tucked into bed.

Armed with her book of alligator facts, little alligator has several good reasons for avoiding bedtime:

Alligators don’t brush their teeth.
They don’t wear pajamas.
And most of all, they DO NOT go to bed.

Luckily, her parents are willing to compromise. Instead of a shower (which alligators hate), she can take a bath. Instead of tucking under the covers, she can lurk beneath the blankets watching for prey.

With vibrant illustrations from Mike Boldt, illustrator of I Don't Want to be a Frog, this irreverent bedtime story by Rebecca Van Slyke is perfect for fierce kids who love to stay up all night, Good Night, Alligator. A wild romp that ends in sweet dreams.
