Hiding Dozi by Daniel Boris


Hiding Dozi by Daniel Boris

The Hoxwinder family arrives home after a long overnight drive from their Florida family vacation. Dozi, the alligator, remains undetected in the mini-van as the rest of the family is busy unpacking the vehicle. Young Byron - panicking about what might happen if his parents discover Dozi - decides to continue hiding the gator in the relative safety of his bedroom. After a series of visual theatrics and evasive gymnastics, Byron successfully gets Dozi to his room without the rest of his family discovering the little alligator.
