Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Dr. Judy Rowen
Beautiful watercolors depict the natural history of alligators. Each illustration accurately captures the alligator's habitat and the other animals and plants that share its watery realm. The text provides lots of information in a concise and understandable manner. Did you know that alligators have a transparent eyelid to protect their eyes underwater? A fascinating peek into the world of these modern-day dinosaurs.
School Library Journal
Gr 1-3-From the opening life-sized, six-page spread of an American alligator to the mysterious, mostly submerged gator glimpsing on the endpapers, watercolor illustrations invite children in for a look at the life cycle and habitat of this imposing creature. Basic information appears in large type and details appear in smaller illustrations with captions set into the backgrounds of many of the pictures. Physical characteristics, behavior, comparisons with other animals sharing its wetland habitat, and its place within that ecosystem are conveyed in simple, lively language and softly realistic illustrations. A warning about how to behave around these predators is convincingly placed between gaping jaws. The pages depicting alligator sounds are covered with what could be mistaken for childish scrawl, but the resulting imitations will be welcome in a story time, a classroom, or on a lap. Buy plenty- this one will crawl quickly off the shelves.-Susan Oliver, Tampa-Hillsborough County Public Library System
Hazel Rochman
Like snakes and sharks, alligators provide an exciting lure to the facts of science, and these scary creatures are a perennially popular subject in children's books. Arnosky's clear text and handsome watercolors convey a sense of wonder. At the same time, he explains a lot about behavior, habitat, and facts of physiology. What does "cold-blooded" mean? How does the alligator differ from the crocodile? What do alligators eat? How dangerous are they to humans? There's a close-up view of the third eyelid, which is transparent for seeing underwater, and of the open jaw with its sharp teeth. The double-page spreads are washed in pale shades of green and gray, depicting a realistic sense of the wetlands and the creatures that are an integral part of its ecology.
