Oliver and His Alligator - Paul Schmid



Release Date - June 25, 2013

Book Review by Bob Walch


Oliver is a little worried about his first day of school so he decides to stop by the swamp and pick up an alligator. Now, in case things “get rough” Oliver has a friend who can deal with the situation.

Right away things do get rough! A lady meets Oliver at the door of the school and asks his name. Poor Oliver suddenly can not remember his name so he responds, “Munch, munch!” which is code for “Eat her!” and the alligator does!

As the day progresses every time the little boy is unable to respond to a question, he says, “Munch, munch!” Soon his alligator is very, very full and the school room is very, very empty! Then Oliver hears noises coming from inside his alligator. “What’s this?” There is laughing and talking. School has started without Oliver.

Now what is the little boy going to do? “Munch, munch!” he said.

Young children will love this very silly story, and if you have a youngster a little wary of his or her first day of school, share this book ahead of time. Once you’ve done that, send the child off with his favorite stuffed animal and the magic words – “Munch, munch!”
