Sherman"Zack's alligator, Bridget, is quite unusual. She's only an alligator key chain when she arrives, but when Zack waters her (per instructions), Bridget becomes a lively full-sized gator who is ready for some fun. She eats heartily, sneaks cookies, wrestles with the garden hose, rides a merry-go-round, does cartwheels, and more. Watts' colored-pencil and black-outline illustrations underscore the humorous events. The portraits of Bridget are especially expressive and appealing. Late in the afternoon, Bridget shrinks back to her original size, but Zack promises to water her every day. (Until then Bridget is safe in Zack's pocket.) In her first book, Mozelle has created a delightful new character whom beginning readers will hope to meet again.
