Description
"Down in the bayou / 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." Nancy Jewell's rhyming romp for youngsters up to 6 gives us a wild wedding in the swamps of Louisiana, pictured in J. Rutland's rambunctious painted cartoons.

"All the jollity one would expect from a tale about the marriage of two alligators rolls out in this festive picture book ... [and] all the accoutrements of a wedding—from ceremony and dinner to cake cutting, dancing, and tossing the bouquet—play out to a 'frenzied bayou beat.' Rutland makes good use of the occasion, adorning the wedding couple in tux and shimmering gown; fitting out the band in white shirt, black ties, and dark glasses; and presenting the guests swinging and swaying in the marshy setting. Background antics of the frogs, pelicans, turtles, spiders, and mice add bits of amusement."—School Library Journal
