Hector the Gentle Alligator is a children’s story written by Mr. Matt. The story follows the journey of a young Aboriginal girl, Vika, as she comes to terms with her unstable mother, being bullied in school, and the discovery a mysterious plot set to destroy her small community. She befriends a gentle red alligator whose unusual coloration just might be the most important discovery in Australian history.
[Publisher’s Note: This is another rough, rough draft. I’m a little iffy on where to start the narration. Should I nix the narrator? He wants to pop in throughout the story, but I don’t know if it makes it funny or makes it weird. Enjoy!]
