REVIEWS ON SNIP SNAP
Nick Maland's clever perspectives make the alligator increasingly alarming as he swells to fill more and more of the page in this well-created story of facing down fear.

* The Guardian *
Using elements of rhythm and rhyme as well as an enjoyably predicable question-and-answer refrain the text maintains a playful tone beneath the scary details... Expressive line drawings, brightened with watercolour washes, illustrate the story with wit and style... good fun. * Booklist *
Mara Bergman and Nick Mayland tell an amusing and tension-filled tale that turns tail and runs on adrenaline power until the very end. The illustrations add to the appeal of this book. * The Lady *
Here's a picture book which, read aloud, will transform any teacher into a star performer; the fanciful situation, rhythmic text, onomatopoeic words, graphic clues for varying verbal volume and masterly cartooning guarantee this is a class act. The young audience can enjoy a delicious dose of the horrors, while learning that, when afraid, it's best to face up to your fears. * TES *
Deliciously scary, but with the obligatory happy ending, this bold and colourful picture book will be real hit with those coming up to school-age. * Carousel *
While Bergman's rhythmic vocal text propels the story forward, it is Nick Maland's illustrations, watercolour on photocopied drawings, that actually provide the book's suspenseful foundation. * NY Times *
One of CCBC Choices for 2006 (Cooperative Children's Book Center's annual best of the year list. ) * CCBC *
...for its youthful audience it becomes a gripping saga of danger and heroism; children dealing with their own imaginary monsters may benefit from a few storytimes with this lively teaching tale. * Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books. 2005 *
Treats usually disappear quickly, but this one will last through repeated readings. * Publishers Weeky *
