Gabby and Gator by James Burks

Gabby and Gator
By: James Burks
What's better than a story about two friends that solve each others problems? A story where one of the friends is an alligator! In this cute tale about an alligator that is afraid of water and toilets and the little eco-friendly girl that befriends him, we experience yet another light hearted tale about how friendship solves all worldy problems. I was not super impressed by the story line, because we've read this concept time and time again, but I cannot deny that it was cute, fun, and worth the 20 minutes it took me to read it. The alligator is hungry and needs to eat, so it feasts on people's dogs. When Gabby befriends him, it gives her the confidence to step up to bullies and gives them both companionship. Gator, though, is always trying to eat dogs, goldfish, and occasionally people. Gabby calls it an eating problem and tries to feed him vegetable smoothies and asks if he's tried tofu. Cute, but I hate to break it to you Gabby, alligators eat meat, and there is no changing evolution. If you want a cute fun read that makes you produce a mini gasp or two on behalf of Gator's choices, pick this book up at the library!
