In the story, "Zack's Alligator" there was a little boy whose name
was Zack. One day, Zack received a box from his Uncle
Jim. Inside was a tiny alligator along with a note that
said, "Water Bridget."
Zack immediately went into the bathroom and watered Brideget. She
began to grow and grow bigger. She got too big for the sink, so
Zack put her in the tub. Bridget was a very friendly alligator.
One day Zack and Bridget went to the park to
play. They played on the monkey bars and seesaw. Zack
friend Turk joined him later for a ride in the park on Bridget's
back. After a day of fun Bridget began to shrink and shrink and
shrink. She was now small again. She was so small she was
able to fit in Zack's pocket.
