This sunny, happy, and lovingly humorous story follows a child alligator—who lives in NYC—as he visits his grandma in her Florida home. "I love my grandma and grandma loves me," he says, as they visit the beach, and theme parks, and, best of all, walk and talk and enjoy each other's company. Everyone will find something in the story to remind them of their own relationships with beloved grandparents or grandchildren. With bouncing rhymes and colorful illustrations, grandparents, parents and children are sure to love reading this story again and again!

When we go inside, grandma gives me a kiss.

In fact there's no place on my face she will miss

I may wriggle and giggle and grumble and hiss,

But only a grandma can kiss you like this.
