BH: Daniel Mahoney signs, We Don't Eat Our Neighbors, Saturday, August 17th at 3pm.


In this laugh-out-loud picture book perfect for fans of Lyle the Crocodile and Dragons Love Tacos, an alligator family runs into trouble when their son can’t seem to curb his appetite for their new human neighbors.

After Libby and Herbert Alligator’s mom lands her dream job as a pastry chef, the family is moving on up out of the slimy swamp and into a bustling town filled with houses, restaurants, schools . . . and people. Libby can’t wait to meet the new neighbors. Herbert can’t wait to eat them.

And that’s not okay with the folks in the neighborhood, who most certainly do not want to become alligator food. Is there a way for Herbert to fit in while remaining true to who he really is? With a little help from his mom, maybe he can have his friends . . . and eat them, too.

From author-illustrator Daniel J. Mahoney, We Don’t Eat Our Neighbors is a witty, heartfelt story about family, fitting in, and finding happiness in a new community.
