Saxophone-playing Miles and his Swamp Band find a bevy of sharp-toothed, long-tailed alligators who love to listen to their music. But little do Miles and his band know what the alligators plan for them at the close of their jubilant all-night ball!

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Miles is given a saxophone for his birthday but, because of all the noise, his parents ask him to practice outside. He joins up with some fellow musicians to form the Swamp Band. The alligators hire the band for their first gig, and they play at the Alligator Ball. They almost become dinner as well, but Miles outwits the alligators. Much of the text is presented as "dialogue balloons" within the bright, colorful illustrations. The music for the title song is provided at the book's conclusion.

My son was given this book as a gift. He loved it so much that he could recite lines from the story by heart at just 2 years old. He will break into song all the time. The story is fun and engaging. He loved it so much that I bought two more copies as gift for family and friends.
