From Publishers Weekly:

In Mrs. Gator's classroom, the lesson for the day is letter writing, and her students (who include animals as well as kids) pick up lots of useful pointers. The amiable alligator first explains the basic components of a letter, from the heading down to the signature or postscript. Tips for "creative letters" are included, among them epistles written on paper cut into various shapes or penned in invisible ink (lemon juice, that shows up when it is ironed "with adult permission"). Leedy's cheerful pictures and sprightly writing samples done in childlike lettering illustrate her succinct guidelines for composing invitations, thank-you notes, get-well letters, tidings of felicitation ("Congratulations on your new baby. I'm sure he will grow into his ears."), fan letters and business correspondence. A lighthearted yet informative how-to by the author of The Dragon ABC Hunt and The Furry News . Ages 4-8.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 1-4-- This book beats any textbook chapter on how to write letters. Friendly letters, business letters, letters of congratulations, and those of complaint are all explained, along with many other types of correspondence and bits and facts, such as the minimum envelope size accepted by the post office; stamps; and how mail travels. And young readers will certainly be interested in the section on writing secret messages. Leedy's softly colored realistic illustrations feature both animal characters and people from a variety of cultures. The partnership of text and illustration gives a lively and interesting perspective to a otherwise dull topic. Classroom writing centers should make this title available, and school and public libraries will want circulating copies. A superb book that shouldn't be missed. --Sharron McElmeel, Cedar Rapids Community Schools, IA
