This unforgettable introduction to a charismatic kid heroine also marks the dazzling debut of an extraordinary new artistic talent!
Note to self: If your teacher tells you to bring something from nature for show-and-tell, she does not want you to bring an alligator! But nothing will stop Magnolia, who’s determined to have the best show-and-tell of all–until her reptilian rapscallion starts getting her into some major trouble. Now it’s up to Magnolia to find a way to send this troublemaker home–but what could possibly scare an alligator away?
“Parsley’s digitally created illustrations brim with energy and just-edgy-enough humor… and the well-chosen school-day details in both the artwork and text… deliver a steady stream of laughs.” — Publishers Weekly
“This is an engaging debut picture book [that] will appeal to a wide age range. Here’s hoping for more adventures with Magnolia!” — School Library Journal
