From the author of One Day in the Eucalyptus, Eucalyptus Tree:
Do you wanna? Wanna see?
Let's go find that gator, gator, gator
COME WITH ME
Put on your life jacket, hop in the boat, and raise your binoculars--it's time to go on an adventure
In Daniel Bernstrom's follow-up to the critically acclaimed One Day in the Eucalyptus, Eucalyptus Tree, a fearless little girl takes off in search of a giant gator--but she's not going into that swamp alone No way She wants YOU, the reader, to come along.
Off you go, peering through the lush landscapes, looking for that gator But each time you think you see it? Oops Just a fox. Or some ducks Or a snake. Maybe you'll never find the gator, gator, gator . . .
With stunning illustrations from Sendak Fellow Frann Preston-Gannon, readers experience the feeling of being on a real adventure deep in the swamp. Rhyming, repeating, and exhilarating, the text is a delightful read-aloud romp that will entertain and make everyone's heart skip a beat
