Alaric Chicken, a major worrywart, must buy a Mother's Day gift, so he puts up a ""Beware of Hungry Alligator"" sign to keep away robbers and sets out. Each potential gift gets sniffed, felt, blown upon, and knocked out of the running. Slippers might cause a fall, candy rots teeth (!), etc. The perfect gift chosen by the weary shopper is a second guardian gator, a conclusion sure to be met with glee. The exaggerated eye-popping color and humorous verbal detail should make this a popular entry.
