Paul and his sister, Lydia, are waiting for dinner. Their younger brother, Jimmy, is in the playroom. It’s just another ordinary evening. Mother is mashing potatoes. Father is flipping burgers. Suddenly, they hear a loud thump from the direction of the playroom. Paul runs down the hall to check on his brother, only to discover an alligator has climbed through the playroom window. An alligator! Paul races back to the kitchen with the amazing news, but no one believes him. What happens next makes a hilarious picture book romp. Mary Olson’s zany story is illustrated with zestÂ by Tammie Lyon.
