When Monty the alligator goes on vacation, a rabbit, duck, and frog look for another way to cross the river to school.
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Arthur (a frog) and Doris (a duck) and Tom (a rabbit) depend on Monty (an alligator), or anyhow they walk on him: he swims them across the river on the way to school, and they've begun to take him for granted (``Let's see some speed, Monty!''). Then one morning Monty declares himself on vacation--maybe for ``years and years.'' The others try some alternatives--a row of turtles, a seesaw as catapult, standing on Arthur's back while he swims-- each ending in an unwelcome splash, but the last gives them more respect for their erstwhile friend, who reappears (``Sometimes when I am on vacation I take a day off'') to enjoy their newfound gratitude and courtesy. Typically delightful Stevenson wit, in both the economical, cartoon-style drawings and the spare, pungent dialogue. (Picture book. 4-9) -- Copyright ©1992, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
