Gabby & Gator by James Burks
Four paw prints. Gabby is a girl who likes vegetables, her tuba, and recycling. But, as a result, she doesn't have many friends and she is lonely. Gator lives by himself in the sewers and he likes computers, books, music, and small animals (especially dogs), but he's misunderstood. Together Gabby and Gator make a great team. Gator helps deal with Gabby's bully problems and Gabby helps Gator deal with his animal control officer problem. They're the perfect team. Now, about Gabby being a vegetarian and Gator liking small animals... I really liked this book. I had doubts when I opened the book because the story description didn't really grab my attention and I'm not a big fan of graphic novels, but I'm so happy I read this book. I loved Gabby and Gator's friendship and how they helped each other while having fun, and I especially loved Gabby's hair and Gator's stripes. They were perfect together.
