When I was a little boy I was convinced that giant snakes lived in the city sewer system. So when The Underground Gators arrived I was prepared for that same little boy perspective. I wasn’t disappointed. While the concept may not be new (check out There’s an Alligator in my Closet by Mercer Mayer) the presentation done by the team of Casey and Musinger will keep readers chuckling right to the last page. The text is simple enough and not too wordy for those readers just beginning to enjoy reading on their own or for younger ones who are not ready for a full length story picture book.
A guranteed request for summertime reading.
