LATER, GATOR by Laurence Yep is the story of a family where sibling rivalry keeps their pot stirred! Now it's little brother Bobby's birthday and big brother Teddy knows just the perfect gift to give his brother.

"If Teddy had his way, he would get his annoying little brother socks for his birthday--but his mother insists he get his brother something special. Teddy chooses an alligator! He`s sure it`s the perfect gift, and that Bobby will be terrified--wrong! The author draws on memories of growing up in San Francisco`s Chinatown to create this story of sibling rivalry."
