Clive Eats Alligators by Alison Lester is about Clive and his friends. It follows them through the day as they go through their routines: breakfast, getting dressed, playing, doing their hobbies, taking care of their pets and so forth.

Each stop in the day highlights something about the four friends. Their choices throughout the day shows their character, showing how the are like their friends and how they are unique.

The alligators Clive eats are a sugary children's cereal. It's one of the many ways he celebrates his love of alligators. Clive and his friends remind me of my children's group of friends. They're so diverse in their backgrounds and likes. It's nice to see that celebrated in a children's book in a believable and charming way. ( )
