Synopsis

Gator by Randy Cecil

A lonely merry-go-round alligator sets off on a courageous journey, and becomes a hero along the way. When the crowds stop coming to the fairground, Gator decides to leave his home on the merry-go-round and sets off on an exciting journey...

Reviews

Cecil's nostalgic tale echoes many classic books. * Publishers Weekly * Children will identify with this odd little hero as he sets off to make things right and, despite moments of fear and sadness, succeeds in the end. Cecil creates a fine sense of place in a series of well-composed oil paintings... Quiet, old-fashioned, and endearing. * Booklist *
