Mama don't allow: starring Miles and the Swamp Band

Book Cover
Average Rating
Harper & Row,
Pub. Date:
1st ed.

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."
