NPM #11

This is one of Jane Yolen’s latest collections of poetry that is illustrated by the photographs of her son, Jason Stemple.

It also includes nonfiction sidebars about alligators to give just a little bit more information on the subject (which the teacher in me always loves to see).  Jane Yolen is the master of word play and I love some of the things she does in this poem (though it took me a few reads to catch it).  Hint: See ya later Alligator!  😉
