Legend has it that alligators live in the New York City sewers. But city life isn't for everyone. Some of those alligators packed up and swam away in search of peace and quiet. Why, they could be living right under your feet. This explains a lot of things. Like what does the babysitter do after you go to bed? Alligators love to play Go Fish. And where do teachers go in the summer? Alligators know the value of a good education.

Uproariously funny illustrations and an author's note about what's really living in the NYC sewer system enhance this wry tale.
