What if alligators were less ferocious and more like curious children exploring their surroundings? That is exactly the image that Miles Smeeton and Eric Grantvedt portray. Smeeton's spirited rhymes and Grantvedt's lively illustrations show a new side of these scaly reptiles that both children and adults will enjoy. Alligators are flying an airplane in "Alligator Air Crew," taking a bath (and leaving a mess!) in "Bathroom Alligator," and singing under a blue moon in "Siren Alligator."From the Inside Flap:
Smeeton's rhymes and Grantvedt's images depict an easygoing and comic side of an animal that many people consider to be a ferocious beast, making the book ideal for children and adults alike.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
