NO FIGHTING, NO BITING!

KIRKUS REVIEW

Joan, a quite proper Victorian young lady, wants to read a book, but little Rosa and Will will not give her a moment's peace. They push, they squeeze, and oh, the questions they ask. And so Rosa has no recourse but to tell them an instructive and entertaining story about two baby alligators who behaved much like the two children. The story has it's effect for a while, but then the fighting recommences. This time a few sage words quiet the cousins and Joan goes demurely back to her book. Else Holmelund Minarik whose Little Bear indicated a uniquely charming talent has outdone herself here and Maurice Sendak's illustrations reaffirm the impression that he is one of the most gifted illustrators of contemporary children's books.
