About the Book:
Gloria is an entrepreneur in everything she does. She has figured out that people who live near the Everglades like to eat gator eggs. So, she has created a very fine gator egg business with her groom Gary and their workers Garth, Garrett, Gabby, Gus, and Gavin. But, she has also found that not all gator eggs are turned into scrambled eggs; some hatch. And that’s the catch — for another one of Gloria’s business — Returns! It costs more to return a gator than to buy the eggs in the first place. And so it goes, with Gloria reaping far more from what she gets back than from what she gives out. Such is life!
This amusing tale is offered up with whimsical characters and delightful syntax while emphasizing the hard “G” sound.
Children who love the books of Dr. Seuss will certainly enjoy this book and the other Sally Huss books as well.
From the Author:
I write children’s books to help brighten the lives of children and add a little dollop of wisdom in the process. Children need good habits, handy skills, and a good sense of humor to keep them moving forward in a happy, healthy, and productive manner. As a King Features syndicated author, I have been creating positive and inspirational messages, called Happy Musings” for newspapers in the U.S. and Canada for many years. This has led to my writing and illustrating a great number of uplifting books for both adults and children. Along with my writing and illustrating, I have created collections of wallpaper for children baby bibs, t-shirts and a vast number of prints and original art for children’s rooms.
Through the years, I have written and illustrated many books for children and adults.
Targeted Age Group: 2-8
“Get up! Get up!” yelled Gloria, as she shook Gary. “You’ve got to get the grub fixed for the guys. They’ll be starved and they won’t do a lick of gathering without their grub.
Gary just lay there. He wanted to grab another wink or two of sleep before getting on with the day, but Gloria would have none of it. “Get up! Get up!” she shouted.
“Gad!” Gary said under his breath, as he jumped out of bed. He grabbed his pants and headed for the kitchen, dressing as he went.
“Guess I got to get the grub fixed for the guys,” he grumbled.
In the kitchen he found the usual. Around the table sat the guys — Garrett, Garth, Gus, Gabby, and Gavin — all dressed in their gathering garb, which consisted of jeans, hats, green shirts, and galoshes. “Get us some grub, Gary,” they growled. “We’ve got to get to our gathering.”
