When Foxy DuBois meets Enzo Ravioli, she knows for sure that he is her key to a rich and happy life. A life of movie stars and swanky parties and fizzy lemonade. What's more, she's going to meet her all-time hero Ebenezer Jones! All she has to do is sneak away in the dead of night and she'll be able to leave all her troubles behind.

Unfortunately for Foxy, Alphonso the Aligator gets wind of her plan, threatening to ruin everything. Foxy cleverly turns the situation to her advantage by tricking Alphonso into becoming a Stunt Alligator. Little does she know that the infuriating reptile will get the better of her once again.

Manchester Evening News - Children's Book of the Week 1 July 2014
Smith has come up trumps again with the creation of Foxy and Alphonso, while Hart's story is fast-paced and easy to read. There's a laugh on every page and it is ideal for younger readers who want to move to longer stories without getting bogged down in chapters. Children will undoubtedly adore the sheer daftness of the story as well as the inevitable wind and warty bottom jokes.

The Independent on Sunday
Ingenious black and white illustrations provided by Alex T Smith... a lot of fun.

Read it Daddy!
Snortingly funny and a great example of a transitional book for kids like Charlotte looking for something a bit longer than the norm, but not as wordy as a chapter reader. Once again, Foxy and Alphonso are a huge hit and we'll be looking forward to that third book!
