Gator loves everything about being a carousel animal -- the flashing lights, the calliope music, and most of all, the laughter. But day by day, week by week, fewer and fewer people come to the amusement park, until one day, no one comes at all. And so begins an extraordinary odyssey,as Gator leaves behind the only life heís ever known and sets off through some deep, dark woods to a place with REAL alligators -- and a wonderful, familiar sound. Illustrator Randy Cecil puts on his authorís hat for this moving story of a modest carousel alligator who finds what heís looking for and becomes a hero along the way.
Lonely for laughter, a carousel animal goes on a courageous journey in Randy Cecilís delightful new picture book.
