Twins Mia and Matt can't wait to get to their uncle's summer cottage and find out what animal will be the star of their vacation. Uncle Orlando is the best animal trainer in the country for movies and television. Last time, they helped him train a group of pigs to sing.

This year turns out to be a challenge ? get an alligator, the slowest and laziest animal on the planet, to dance! All Nestor the Gator will do for Orlando is bathe in the sun. Will the twins get bitten, or will Matt's breakdancing skills help Nestor learn some moves?

Suddenly, a strange thing happens ? the gator starts making a sculpture out of mud and grass. What is he up to? Mia and Matt are in for a surprise! The alligator turns out to be female, and soon thirty baby alligators, nesting in the sculpture, hatch from their eggs.

Read from the Book

Chapter 1 Already it was almost time to leave for Blackfly Lake. For once, the time had flown by. I was busy with my final tests and my job as director of the year-end festival at school. My brother Matt had choreographed a hip-hop dance for the show. His group was a big hit. Matt had a posse of girls following him around, including Eloise, my best friend.

Finally I was ready to go, but Matt was still talking on the phone. I listened at the door. Hmmm, he was talking to Eloise. "Sure, you can call me at the cottage. Didn''t Mia give you the number?" I hadn''t even thought of giving her the number, so I felt a bit guilty. But on the other hand, she never asked me for it! I opened the door a crack to spy on Matt. I don''t know what Eloise said to him, but he suddenly blushed, stammered and hung up. I walked in, pretending I had just got there. "Time to get ready, Mr. Popularity!" Matt wasn''t listening.

Editorial Reviews

Langlois provides young readers with a positive example to emulate: a young girl whose commitment to a project is ultimately achieved and admired by loved ones. ....Mia, Matt and the Lazy Gator bestows young readers with the hopefulness to reach their desired goals. I would recommend Langlois'' early reader for both school and public libraries. Recommended.
