Alligator: The Play by Theresa Breslin
  

The Lovereading4Kids comment

A gripping story which catches the roller-coaster that Sam is on when he finds he has acquired an alligator as a pet! How on earth is Sam going to manage such a ferocious and hungry creature? The only place he can think to hide it in is Sam’s lock-up. And when a burglar tries to steal Sam’s car, it turns out to be a very good choice indeed. Simply written and with a strong storyline, this is an excellent, dyslexia friendly story.
