This is one of my favorite children’s books to read at storytime. The Gator and Crocodile are very different but that doesn’t stop them from becoming good friends and having fun and silly adventures. They come across many things in the swamp including Ants in purple underpants! (A favorite among the kids.) The author has done a wonderful job weaving a good life lesson into a fun and entertaining story for children. This is a must have for your child’s bookshelf.

What a fun and silly book. I loved how the colored pictures made the stories come to life! My 8 year old grandson said he read it 2 or 3 times. He thought it was funny. It's short and simple so kids can understand it. People in the southern states should get this book so their kids could see the fun in Gators and Crocodiles! Karen Lommen, Cave Creek, AZ

I thoroughly enjoyed reading these short stories. Having previously taught in early childhood education, I appreciate a book that offers a fun and entertaining way to teach a variety of topics. It touches on diversity and encourages friendships. It gives opportunity to discuss self worth. It provides the opportunity for further discussion to build on a child's self worth by listing all the things they are able to do. The author has a fun and engaging style. The length of the stories are perfect for young audiences. I would recommend this book to any that enjoys reading to children. Yes, the ants in purple underpants was a big hit.

Reviewed by Carol Thompson for Readers' Favorite "Later Gator, In a While Crocodile" is a book about an alligator and a crocodile who become friends. There are three stories in the book, each with a different adventure. 'Along Comes a Crocodile' is the opening story of the alligator and crocodile meeting and playing together. The second story, 'Crocodile and Gator's Great Adventure' is a charming little adventure between the two unlikely friends and the third story 'Crocodile and Gator's Silly Swamp Day' is a humorous journey of the two meeting up with other animals. The author has been able to take a common theme (we are alike, we are different) and make it interesting. Each story has perfect rhyme and rhythm and they are all easy and entertaining reads. The illustrations are colorful and really enhance the stories. They are accurate to the text and reflect what is going on in each scene, an important aspect of children's books. When I first saw this book, I thought it was going to be the same old story of two different animals coming together to form a friendship but I was pleasantly surprised by the stories. The author reaches beyond the imagination to draw the child into the story with clever prose. These are not only good books for reading aloud, but would be excellent silent reads too. The author did a good job with the rhythm and flow of each story and the illustrator provided entertaining pictures. I will stop short of calling this author the next Dr. Seuss, but the writing is very similar. But this author has his own unique style. I would highly recommend this book. It is one that can be enjoyed time and time again.

We have two kids, reading is a nightly tradition for us and they ask for this book over and over again. They love the pictures and the rhyming. Their favorite is the ants in the purple underpants. We love the underlying message that it gives: everyone is equal and alike, it doesn't matter what you look like. That's an important message and something we definitely try to make our children understand! We highly recommend this book! - Al and Mikaela
