Mama Don't Allow 25th Anniversary Edition
Saxophone-playing Miles and his Swamp Band find a bevy of sharp-toothed, long-tailed alligators who love to listen to their music. But little do Miles and his band know what the alligators plan for them at the close of their jubilant all-night ball! Inspired by a traditional song, this vibrant picture book is "ebullient, fast-paced, and funny."

Review: Mama Don't AllowUser Review - Denise Kettering - Goodreads
Living in Louisiana, this book is a lot of fun to read to our son as it combines the swampy terrain that we live in and the music that is popular here. The illustrations are bright and vibrant. I also have fond memories of this book from Reading Rainbow as a child. Read full review

Alligators don't get good representation in many books. I'm sure my dislike of them stems from children's picture books read in my formative years. Read full review
