Cutler’s comedy examines truth and exaggeration, and takes shots at public hysteria and how it’s created, in this third book about the Fraser brothers (No Dogs Allowed, 1992, etc.). Edward is known for his active imagination, so when he tells people he’s seen a baby alligator in the lake at the local public park, at first no one believes him. ... The baby alligator is caught, of course; this humorous romp is deft at giving readers a realistic glimpse of the difference between fact and fiction—and silly characters lighten the lesson. (Fiction. 7-10)

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0374425213, Paperback)

A third book in the popular Fraser brothers series.

Right after seeing his older brother, Jason, in a school production of Peter Pan, Edward Fraser claims to have spotted an alligator in his neighborhood park's lake. Jason and his parents think the sighting is a result of Edward's overactive imagination, probably inspired by the play. But then the local news media hear about it and suddenly the town is all abuzz. Cameramen, reporters, animal rights activists, and Jim Bob Hooke, a professional alligator rescuer, are all camped out by the lake, waiting to see the 'gator. Does it really exist? Of course it does! Jane Cutler once again captures the essence of boyhood in this hilarious chapter book.

Imaginative second-grader Edward swears he saw a baby alligator in the Shaw Park lake, but no one believes him.
