"Alligator pie, alligator pie, / If I don't get some I think I'm gonna die." So begins one of the most beloved of modern children's rhymes, first introduced in 1974 by Dennis Lee and now reinvented for a new generation of children. Nora Hilb's witty, vibrant artwork makes the speaker's plea for "alligator pie," "alligator stew," and "alligator soup" all the more amusing.

Dennis Lee, also known as Father Goose, creates memorable rhymes in this classic book, Alligator Pie.

It's probably the best introduction to poetry there is. Nothing quite like a nice bit of nonsense Canadiana.
