Acerca de


After moving to Orlando, Florida, and befriending an alligator because he considers it to be as ugly and unwanted as he is, Jim starts to feel different about his life.

From Kirkus Reviews:

Since his parents died when he was a baby, Jim--13 and woefully homely--has lived with his grandmother in Tampa. When she dies, the family meets to parcel him off. Things look grim until Billie relents. Despite ``a house, two mortgages and no man,'' she'll take him home to Orlando--but only for the summer, until her two daughters return from visiting their father. Jim resolves to make himself indispensable, but life has taught him some harsh lessons and he hardly dares hope. He settles into a routine of housework, mowing lawns, and babysitting and meets Mr. Morrison, who likes Jim to read his mail to him, and his dog Trudie. Mr. Morrison tells Jim that the alligators in a nearby lake will eat dogs and warns him never to feed them. But to Jim- -yearning for a confidante, desperate to control his own life, quick to identify with a creature as ugly as he thinks himself to be--feeding a gator is irresistible; the worst is inevitable. Still, he weathers the tragedy and moves toward being adopted by Billie and accepted by her daughters. The quiet story realistically captures Jim's pain and his ultimate relief; a revelatory moment when he first sees a photo of his parents is especially poignant.

Descripción de la librería

Modetz Errands-n-More is committed to providing each customer with the highest standard of customer service. We attempt and almost always succeed in shipping every order within 24 hours. We cannot, however, guarantee this every time, but there have only been a few orders where this was not the case. We strive to maintain the highest feedback store by going above and beyond for each and every customer, regardless of the cost of their order. We look forward to serving you. There is a particular item that you are in search of that is not listed under our inventory currently, feel free to make a request. We have over 1,000's books and other items in our warehouse and counting, and as we try to be as detailed as possible in our listings, getting them all online is a slow process. There is a chance that we may have it, so just let us know. We appreciate all of our new customers and we would like to thank all of our repeat buyers, as your loyalty and patronage is what we strive for. FYI...while some of our listings say that they ship from FL, we recently moved to MI. Regardless, orders are shipped so quickly, that this location difference makes little to no difference with respect to arrival times. Thank you and happy reading!
