About the Author:

Gail Gibbons, author of more than one hundred books, is the winner of the Washington Post/Children's Book Guild Award for her overall contribution to children's nonfiction literature. Called a "master of picture book nonfiction” by ALA Booklist, Ms. Gibbons has a special talent for making complex subjects understandable and entertaining for young readers.

 rstandable and entertaining for young readers.&nb

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3–5—Gibbons's signature artwork splashes across the pages of this competent look at crocodilians. While indicating that there are 14 species of crocs and 2 of gators, the author focuses mainly on the American alligator and the American crocodile, disparate cousins that share a geographical environment (with the crocs mainly hugging southern Florida and the Keys). Gibbons discusses anatomical differences and similarities, mobility, hunting techniques, nest building, and parenting in her brief, readable text, using illustrations and diagrams to drive home her points. She closes with a plea for the conservation of these relics from the days of the dinosaurs and an extra page of saurian factoids. Simpler than Lisa Bullard's What's the Difference Between an Alligator and a Crocodile? (Picture Window) or Laurence Pringle's Alligators and Crocodiles!: Strange and Wonderful (Boyds Mills, both 2009), this is a colorful introduction to a pair of reptiles in our Southern states, with some toothy eye-candy on the cover.—Patricia Manning, formerly at Eastchester Public Library, NY
