Jono didn’t mean to buy an alligator. It just sort of happened. And now his mum’s going to kill him…if the alligator doesn’t get there first! A hilarious comedy. When Jono’s friend Crusher offers him a rather hungry alligator out of the boot of his car he thinks someone would have to be crazy to buy it. But somehow Jono finds himself as the proud new owner! Now the only question is, how is he going to hide it from his mother? A laugh-out-loud comedy! Particularly suitable for reluctant, struggling and dyslexic readers of 10+, reading age 7.
