Alfie is an adorable alligator who wants one of the cookies his mother has just baked. When he attempts to help himself, his mother tells him to "think of a better way to get a cookie." Alfie tries a number of methods, including dressing up as a "Cooky Inspekter," until, with a little help from Mommy, he finds the right one. Simple, large text, with no more than two sentences on a page, will invite the newest reader. The sweet, expressive illustrations, portraying Alfie as a resourceful yet normal little boy, are just right for the story. Recommended for ages 3-6 . Recommended by Barbara Karp, Librarian
