From School Library Journal PreSchool-Grade 3 The alligators are playing baseball when outfielder Alfie is distracted by a passing snack. Izzy's long ball beans him, knocking him cold. He awakens with amnesia, frightened by the toothy characters standing over him. He takes off with the gang racing after him, out of the swamp, into the suburbs, frightening joggers. He climbs through a window, where Marge, who's lost her glasses, mistakes Alfie for her husband and feeds him breakfast. And that's only the beginning. The comedy of errors roars on to a happy ending with Marge finding her glasses and accident-prone Alfie coming to his senses in a madcap motorcycle mishap. Rubel, author of Uncle Henry and Aunt Henrietta's Honeymoon (Dial, 1986) and illustrator of Gantos' Rotten Ralph (Houghton, 1976), one of the best primitive cartoonists to put pen and color marker to paper, surpasses herself. A romp that's large enough for small groups but best on laps because of the detail. It's also easy enough for beginning readers. Helen Gregory, Grosse Pointe Public Library, Mich.
