Henry Holt, 1992
Suddenly, the alligator spies the bright pink feathers of the spoonbill. She sinks beneath a carpet of floating duckweed, and silently swims toward the unsuspecting bird.
Will the spoonbill get away? Why do the baby alligators cry out to their mother?
Guiberson's compelling text and Lloyd's evocative illustrations are just right for even the youngest listener. Parents and teachers may appreciate the story's lesson in wetlands ecology, but children are sure to respond to the fascinating details and suspense in this real-life drama.
