When Monty the alligator goes on vacation, a rabbit, duck, and frog look for another way to cross the river to school.

From Kirkus Reviews:

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.
