J. T. Boi accidentally bumps into Alik the alligator when he rides his scooter into the pond. Alik mistakes the helmeted, goggle-wearing boy for an alien. Boi confuses the muddy Alik for a swamp monster. Both run home in a panic to share their news with their siblings, only to find out that their families don’t believe them! When they both return to the pond and cross paths again, they realize how much they have in common and form a most unexpected friendship. This is an amusing story about second chances and looking past appearances. Ages 3 to 7.
