Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This was one of my favorite children's books when I was growing up. The book has excellent illustrations. This particular book is divided into several short stories that can stand on their own, or read as one story.
A young alligator leaves his Aunt to find his uncle by the sea. His uncle tells him stories of when he was young and sailed on a ship.
I highly recommend this book.

I wish that more of Geoffery Hayes books were in print. I love his drawings of bears, but The Alligator and His Uncle Tooth is an all time fave! I read it at least every couple of years. I LOVE Bear by Himself, too, but was disappoited in the reprint. I liked the older pictures so much more. Please reprint his books especially this one!

The Alligator and His Uncle Tooth : A Novel of the Sea is a beautifully written book...Hayes' prose is lyrical and mystical. The characters really come alive and are universal in their appeal to children. Bring it back into print!

Format: Hardcover
My mother used to read this to me, and I've read it several times since then (I'm now 30). Although not as well known as other children's books, The Alligator and His Uncle Tooth is absolutely one of my favorites. Hayes' writing is delightfully descriptive, and he incorporates easily digestible elements of fantasy, adventure, and mystery into this story about a boy alligator full of curiosity and ambition that isn't content with the humdrum of normal alligator life. This story still stirs my desires to leave everything behind and explore the world.
