|About the Book|
Featured on the New York Times Childrens Picture Book Bestseller List for Sixteen Weeks! SCHOLASTIC READING COUNTS! SELECTION A crackerjack of a book! --Daniel Pinkwater, National Public Radios Weekend Edition What if alligators were less ferocious and more like curious children exploring their surroundings? That is exactly the image that Miles Smeeton portrays in Pelicans new book of alligator poems. Smeeton, along with illustrator Eric Grantvedt, shows alligators in many different situations. They are taking a bath and leaving a mess in Bathroom Alligator, flying and staffing a plane in Alligator Air Crew, and singing in Siren Alligator. Smeetons rhymes and Grantvedts images depict an easygoing and comic side of an animal that many people consider to be a ferocious beast, making the book ideal for children and adults alike.
