Editorial Reviews

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.
School Library Journal
Ilene Cooper
When Uncle Jim sends his nephew an alligator key chain, Zack runs it under the water as instructed. Suddenly, a full-grown alligator, Bridget, appears in the tub. Zack's Mom takes all of Bridget's actions--stuffing herself with food, getting tangled up in the hose--in stride, but Zack has all he can do to keep up with the creature. Happily, Bridget goes back to key-chain size at night, with the promise of being "watered" to full scale the next day. Amusing antics will keep new readers turning the pages, and zesty watercolors, starring the athletic Bridget, add fun.

    Zack's Alligator is about an alligator key chain that becomes a real live pet alligator. Humorous and entertaining for young children

    I bought this book for a seven year old boy to read and complete a book report for school. "Zack's Alligator" was entertaining, perfect for his reading level and captured his interest. He shared it with his brother and sister. The illustrations are colorful and help tell the story.
    Zack is a young boy who receives an alligator key chain from his uncle in Florida. A note in the box said to "Just add water." You will be surprised how Bridget becomes a real live alligator. Zack learns how to take care of his new pet, feed her and give her water. Zack and his friends have fun around their town with Bridget and talk about taking Bridget to school. You will laugh as you read about Bridget's encounters with the a lady and her dog, the mailman and a policeman.
    We recommend "Zack's Alligator" for all young children to read themselves or enjoy as you read to them. It is a good choice for an elementary school library also.

    It'll bring a smile to your child's face

    When learning to read it is so imprortant for the child to be inspired to read on through the book. Simple insnt enough. For my daughter the story has to be worth the effort and this one didnt disappoint. She really enjoyed it and spontaneously reads it again and again.

    6 year old

    My 6 year old grandson, just turned 6 last week, had no trouble reading this book at all. It is easy reading and he only stumbled on about 5 words. Maybe I should have started with a #3.
