    One thought on “AuSable Alligators”

    1. I initially picked up this book after "googling" myself and finding it contains a character sharing my full name. I recently read it with my 5 year old nephew.We both enjoyed it. The main character is a 12 year old boy who loves to fly fish. Rand includes rich descriptions of riparian sights and sounds, fly fishing, and of native birds and fish of Michigan, which spur conversations and further research.While on a night fishing outing, the boy discovers that there are alligators living in the Au [...]

    2. AuSable Alligators AuSable Alligators by Jonathan Rand is a book that will keep you on the edge of your seat and you won’t want to put the book down! Craig likes to fish in the river down behind his house but he thinks he sees something big in the water. Of course no one will believe him. Alligators do not live in Michigan! He tells his friend Heater and they will investigate but will they ever stay alive to tell their tail?

    3. This book was great for children that love mysteries. It incorporates a thriller with good geographical information that will educate students on Michigan streams. Definitely a fiction book with factual information. I connected with this book because alligators were let go in my lake! I would say this book would be for grades 3-5 because the plot does get a little frightening. This book is a great chapter book mystery that can leave you with cliff hangers but keeps you reading on.

    4. I was curious about Johnathan Rand's series of children's "horror" titles so read this one. Better writing than I expected and young readers will be sure to enjoy it. There are a lot of "jump scares"; for example a chapter ends on a hint of danger, and the beginning of the next chapter reveals that it was nothing. When my son gets a bit older and has the patience for a story without pictures I'll read these to him.

    5. Not really chilling but really cool. Felt like I was watching a Crocodile Dundee movie or the discovery channel. It was cool.
