Those alligators really do get around! Yet beneath their actually vain and occasionally shockingly spoiled surface, the friendly fanged creatures have a charm that nobody can resist. Maurice Sendak's alphabet book will have young"readers"reciting their ABC's in no time. Whether they're entertaining elephants, making macaroni, having headaches, or throwing tantrums, the rascally reptiles are never napping! Sendak, beloved author-illustrator of such classics as Where the Wild Issues Are, In the Night Kitchen, and Chicken Soup with Rice, significantly like his green gator gang, is always getting giggles. The three-color illustrations endear these very quarrelsome critters to readers' hearts. Somehow, these likable lizards manage to capture the foibles and peculiarities of human nature far better than many bipeds ever could. Mom, Dad, and Junior are brimming with personality; the collective images create a full picture with all the nutty--yet remarkably familiar--household. (Baby to preschool) --Emilie Coulter
