in the marshy glades
where the alligators slither and slide,
on a warm summer night
when the moon was bright
an alligator took a bride.
And what a night it is!
Join a crowd of boisterous beasties for a rollicking night full of feasting and dancing as they celebrate the alligators’ wedding as only the creatures of the bayou can. From belching toasts to the newlyweds, to doing the Big Beast Boogie, to throwing spicy rice, there’s never a dull moment!
“All the jollity one would expect from a tale about the marriage of two alligators rolls out in this festive picture book… This one is sure to perk up humor collections.”—School Library Journal
