three little gatorsThree little gators lived so cozy with their mama in an east Texas swamp. But mama said it was time for them to leave and build their own homes. Beware, she said, of the Big-Bottomed Boar who liked nothing better that succulent little gators. Well, the most industrious gator didn’t mind hard work and built his house of rocks. His less industrious brothers used sticks and sand. Guess what? Big-Bottomed Boar soon cured the lazy ones who found refuge in the rock house. The semi-tropical locale in this retelling of the Three Little Pigs is full of southern charm. The full page illustrations are lively and add to the zippy story. This is a welcome addition for young story times.
