Alligators, alligators / by Eve Bunting ; illustrated by Diane Ewen.

Bunting, Eve, 1928- (author.). Ewen, Diane (Illustrator), (illustrator.).


On the Sunny River dock, people pack onto the big tourist boat, waiting for their chance to see the alligators. What they don't know is that, down in the swamp, the alligators are waiting for them too! Jim and his dad run this tour, and Jim has a special talent to share with the people and creatures of the swamp alike. Animals flock to him to hear his flute-playing--it een makes the alligators dance! His music is so remarkable that a greedy passenger decides he must have Jim's flute. Will one person's selfishness ruin the magic of the swamp for everyone? -- Provided by publisher.
