What happens to you if you swallow a watermelon seed? Do you turn pink? Do vines grow out of your ears? Do you end up in a fruit salad?
"The Watermelon Seed" by Greg Pizzoli is an adorable picture book about an alligator and his affinity for eating watermelon -- until one day he swallows a seed! The playful illustrations are all in pink, green, black and white. And this book may just remind you of the likes and fears of your own little one. "The Watermelon Seed" is a fun summer, picnicky read.
Greg Pizzoli is an author, illustrator and screen printer. He teaches at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, a fabulous school dedicated to the arts (where I spent three happy semesters learning letterpress printing). They offer undergraduate and graduate degrees in more than 40 disciplines that fall under College of Art, Media and Design; College of Performing Arts; and Division of Liberal Arts.
