Amanda and her alligator have lots of fun together, but when Amanda’s grandfather buys her a panda, Alligator must learn to make new friends.

Amazon Description:

6½ stories about 2 surprising friends.

Having a stuffed alligator for a best friend can be surprising.

Sometimes Amanda surprises her alligator with books. Sometimes Alligator surprises Amanda by eating them.

But what happens when Amanda brings home a special—and not entirely welcome—surprise? The result might be unexpected indeed.
