What happens when a young boy spies an alligator in a popular city park? He has to warn EVERYONE! That's what my story "There's An Alligator in Audubon Park" is all about.

There's an alligator in Audubon Park!
There's an alligator in Audubon Park!

With your help I can print 3,000 copies - enough to make printing a full-color hardcover edition of the book affordable. If we reach this goal, our stretch goal will be to create an ebook version to go along with the hard cover.

I hope that I’ve piqued your interest and that you want to hear how this story ends as much as I want to tell it to you!
