Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2 In one or two lines of text per page and large, boldly colored illustrations, Mercer tells the tale of a little boy who is sure that there is an alligator under his bed. Getting no sympathy from his parents who ``never saw it,'' he forms a plan of attack. He leaves a trail of food from his bed through the house to the garage door. He then follows behind as the alligator gobbles up the goodies, fresh vegetables, fruit, and even ``the last piece of pie,'' making its way to the garage. The boy then locks the door. The last page shows the note he leaves for his father, telling him that there's an alligator in the garage and to wake him up ``if you need help.'' Children will relate to this young hero's triumph over normal childhood fears, and they'll love his clever solution to his problem. The book gleams with crisp full-color watercolor illustrations, and the alligator has just the right touch of scariness. The little boy is obviously a child of the 1980s, with his hot wheels tricycle and robot transformer type toys, but the story is timeless. Sure to become as popular as Mayer's There's a Nightmare in My Closet (Dial, 1968) and bound to be a storyhour staple.Patricia Homer, Lowville Acad . , N.Y.

    My favorite childrens book

    This story is one of the greatest stories I have ever read. The first time I read it was when I was in first grade and I can remember sitting on my grandfathers lap reading it to him with a little help of course and from then on I read it everyday now I am in college and I can still remember every word. What more can I say this book is great.

    Awesome book

    This is one of my children's and now my grandchildren's favorite books! They know it by heart and read along with me and make the same faces and motions of the little hero in the story while we read! This is definitely a book to keep and to pass along!

    There's An Alligator Under the Bed

    This is an excellent pre-K. book by Mercer Mayer. When I taught preschool (4 year olds) many years ago, my students wanted me to read this book at least twice a day-which I did. It was by far their favorite book. I recently ordered this book for my 16 month old grandson and he just loves it! I would highly recommend this book.
