about this item
The Green-Nosed Alligator clowns around!
Down by the bayou, Gaston® is awoken by a commotion across the swamp. He spots a red and white tent with marvelous acts—the circus has come to his quiet abode. Always an adventurous animal, Gaston® decides to join the crew and try his green hand at circus life. He struggles with this trick and that, never quite getting the hang of the complicated acts. Finally, Gaston® realizes his true talent lies in making people laugh! Written and illustrated by the legendary James Rice before his death, this charming tale was discovered by his children. The artwork contains all the strokes and elements of his signature style, while the story adds one more classic tale to the canon of children’s literature.
