Overview

A rhythmic telling of mother alligator’s clever trick to save her children from the forest fire.

There is panic in the swamp. An alligator raises her head above the water to see what all the fuss is about. A fork of lightning has started a great fire and all the animals are running away. But the alligator runs in the opposite direction. She has a nest of eggs and must save her babies. When they hatch, she leads them down under the water where they will stay submerged until the trouble is gone. A very vivid sense of danger builds in this exciting rhythmic text and keeps you in suspense until the rain falls and . . . “trouble going . . . trouble going . . . trouble gone.” The dramatic illustrations beautifully convey the exotic wildlife of the Florida Everglades where the story is set.
