Publisher Comments:

Saxophone-playing Miles and his Swamp Band find a bevy of sharp-toothed, long-tailed alligators who love to listen to their music. But little do Miles and his band know what the alligators plan for them at the close of their jubilant all-night ball! Inspired by a traditional song, this vibrant picture book is "ebullient, fast-paced, and funny."

mom of three, December 10, 2006 (view all comments by mom of three)
I loved reading this book to my children. They loved the song that is incorporated into the story, especially the ending. By the time we turned the last page, they were ready to close their eyes and drift off to sleep. Maybe it helped that I wanted to connect them to my southern roots, but I think any parent with a bit of music ability would also enjoy making up a tune and creating a great family tradition.
