Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3-5-Alligators once shared the earth with dinosaurs, and they also share the ability to attract children to nonfiction; this book will maintain that attraction long past the allusion to their famous family tree. These are remarkable reptiles who may have spawned tales of fire-breathing dragons and who are capable of creating their own ecosystem. Lauber takes readers through their life cycle and behavior, explaining their ability to adapt, survive, and once protected, even come back from near extinction. Most fascinating is their essential role in the chain of life in their wetland habitats. Sharp full-color photographs and detailed line drawings are highly interesting and informative. Topnotch narrative nonfiction for transitional readers.-Susan Oliver, Tampa-Hillsborough County Public Library System
