legend Has It That Alligators Live In The Sewers Of New York City. Casey Assures Us That They Must Be There, Because That Explains So Many Things. For Example, Smoke Is Always Coming Up From The Streets Because Alligators Love Barbecue. The Many Wires On The Brooklyn Bridge Are There For The Alligators To Dry Their Laundry. Some Of The Alligators, However, May Have Tired Of The City And Left. Slyly, Casey Reminds Us, They Could Be Anywhere Under Your Feet! And So We Discover That The Sock Missing In The Laundry Has Been Taken By An Alligator To Make A Puppet. We Even Find Out Why School Buses Are Orange, And Who Fills In For The Sick Tooth Fairy; Why Pizzas Are Round And Doughnuts Have Holes. Munsinger's Sketchy Water-colored Alligators Just Take Over, Watched By A Young Boy Who Finally Smiles Along With Us. The Sketchy Tongue-in-cheek Text Is Simply The Spur For Munsinger's Visual Imagination, Delivering Pages Of Anthropomorphic Gators At Play. For Example, Nobody Argues With A Suitably Attired Squad Of Zealous Gators Painting The School Bus Orange. And You Had Better Be Prepared With Pizza And Doughnuts If They Show Up At Your House. You Can Go Along And Have As Much Fun As They Do. A Note By Casey, Who Worked For The New York City Department That Runs The Sewer System, Fills In Factual Information About The Legend. Reviewer: Ken Marantz And Sylvia Marantz
