Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Dori Butler
Best friends, (and alligators) Amy and Allie, thought nothing could ever come between them. Then Gracie Alligator moves to Swamp Street. Gracie invites Allie to make jewelry with her. And she invites Amy to make cookies with her. But the real problem comes when she accidentally invites both girls to the popular Rockin Reptiles concert. She only has one ticket. Will these three alligators find a way to resolve this problem and still remain friends? This beginning chapter book could be a nice read-aloud for young elementary school students. It is also a good transitional book for students who are ready to move beyond picture books and easy readers, but aren't quite ready for full novels yet. The book contains nine short chapters. Colorful line drawings appear on nearly every page.

Gr 2-4Alligators Amy and Allie are best friends who do everything together until fun-loving Gracie moves in next door. Gracie invites each girl over separately and, though they feel guilty about going alone, they both have a great time. She also asks them both to accompany her to the Rockin' Reptiles concert, even though she has only one extra ticket. Worry about their threatened friendship explodes into anger when Amy and Allie discover only one of them can go and Gracie leaves it to them to decide which one it will be. They turn for help to Madam Lulu, the fortune teller, who dramatically recalls a terrible argument with her own best friend. Realizing their relationship is more important than tickets, the girls work out a fair solution to their problem and establish a solid, three-way friendship at the same time. This rather typical friendship story is set apart by reptile characters and zippy, lighthearted dialogue that includes lively snatches of Rockin' Reptile songs and Gracie's riddles. Munsinger's colorful illustrations, filled with vivacious gators, reflect the humor and tone of the story and break up the text nicely. Though the simple sentence structure suggests the book is intended for beginning-novel readers, the narrative includes some rather demanding vocabulary. Readers who are ready for challenge will relish this spirited tale.Maggie McEwen, Coffin Elementary School, Brunswick, ME
