A goofy and lonely denizen of the jungle has just one talent -- scaring other creatures with his big, scary teeth What would he do without them?

Deep in the jungle lurks Alan the alligator, descended from a long line of very scary alligators. He prepares carefully -- polishing his scales, brushing each of his big, scary teeth, and practicing his frightening faces -- then sneaks into the jungle to terrorize the jungle critters. ("I'm big, scary Alan Fear my razor-sharp teeth ") But after a long day of scaring, Alan likes nothing better than to enjoy the crossword, run a warm mud bath, and take out his teeth, which nobody else knows are false. Until one morning, when Alan wakes up and finds that his teeth are gone Without those teeth, he's just not very scary, and scaring is the only thing he knows how to do. Or is it? Witty, charming, and playful storytelling will have preschoolers cheering for Alan as he discovers a new way to fit in.
