Gaston Drills an Offshore Oil Well by James Rice
Book DescriptionThe intrepid Gaston(R), a green-nosed alligator and one of the most celebrated characters in modern childrens literature, embarks on a brand-new adventure into the Gulf of Mexico. After receiving a tip from a friendly crab, Gaston(R) decides to invest his savings in an offshore oil well. Having surveyed several types of oil rigs, Gaston decides to construct one of his very own. With the help of crew members, Gaston works hard to build his drilling rig, even continuing through a storm. Finally he strikes oil and can return to Louisiana as the states richest alligator. As in Gastons previous adventures, the locale, terminology, and techniques are authentic. Gaston(R) Drills an Offshore Oil Well gives young people a basic introduction to the problems and procedures involved in producing Americas oil. A glossary provides clear definitions of the new vocabulary such as hotshot and monkey tower. Peppered with humor and seasoned with Rices colorful artwork, this is a delightful volume for young and old and a must-have addition for anyone collecting Rices books.
