Angry Alligators: A First Grader's Take

You've got to love little kids. Everything that comes out of their mouths is completely unplanned, unexpected, and occasionally...uncensored.

Take, for instance, the reply to my innocent question: "Why would the alligator in the story be angry?" The expected answer, as we learned in an earlier book, was that he had a bad back. Not so expected was this first grader's response: "Well, sometimes alligators poop eggs." Yes, I suppose that this would make the alligator a little angry.
