Most people would agree that ducklings are cute. If you’re an alligator, you also think they look delicious.

Will the mean alligator feast on the baby ducks or will the animals and townspeople stop him?

Read this timeless tale of bullying and nature to find out.



I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for a review.  I read the story with my four year old and there were definitely things in the book that I liked and things that I didn’t.  The story had a few exciting scenes where the ‘townspeople’ were defending the ducklings from the alligator.  During those scenes, my four year old was very excited and engaged in the story.  However, the story was somewhat drawn out and the focus of the story seemed to have been lost.  I liked the story for the most part, but for a children’s book it needed to be condensed and more to the point.  I also hoped that the pictures were higher resolution as the pictures looked pixelated.
