Brooke C being brave with puppies, goats and gators!
Courage is contagious. Empathy is encouraged. Kindness is krittercal!
The last thing scaredy-cat Izzy wants to do is sneak baby alligators into her house. But when her friend Joey begs her to save the alligators’ lives, Izzy faces her fears and finds enough compassion and courage to rescue the gators.
Izzy, along with Joey and her brother Sam, discover a nest of baby alligators stranded after the Gator Getters carted their mama away. This leaves the hatchlings defenseless against adults who don’t like the thought of gators running loose in their cul-de-sac.
Izzy, Sam, and Joey hatch a plan to save the baby gators before any parents—or worse, a hungry chef—get to them first. However, when Joey gets grounded, Izzy must drag Sam on a wild adventure through town to get the gators to safety and back to their mama.
Combining hilarious hijinks, heartfelt moments, and relatable lessons, Wimps of the Wild: Gator Getters features:

Perfect for early middle-grade readers, Wimps of the Wild: Gator Getters not only educates children about reptiles but helps them recognize situations in which they can show kindness to creatures—even if they’re scared.
