Description of this Book

Roy's parents move around a lot so he's used to the new-kid routine. But his new home in Florida is the worst yet. Bullied at school and feeling out of place, life is not looking promising...Then Roy spots the running boy. No books. No bag. No shoes. Sensing an adventure, Roy sets out on his trail and before he knows it he's mixed up with toilet-trained alligators, snakes with sparkly tails, a ruthless PR man...and the burrowing owls living on the corner of East Oriole Avenue. It's the adventure of a lifetime.
