Grade 4-8-- The new edition of this 1969 title features lush, full-color illustrations and a few revisions. The book follows one alligator through the month of October, a crucial time when drying rivers send animals to the Everglades alligators' deeper holes. The creature's hunger as it waits for food provides the thread around which George weaves information about its lifestyle as well as its importance to Everglades ecology. Name dropping of flora and fauna will challenge readers to check field guides as there is no glossary. George's flowing, nonanthropomorphic text evokes the dense green, seeping ecosystem illustrated in Rothman's realistic gouache paintings. Further reading includes books on alligators but only one (a government publication by George) on the Everglades. --Sally Bates Goodroe, Houston Public Library
