Alligator Slim is tired of singing sad songs and playing the blues down in the swamp. From now on, he’s going to play jazz! He packs up his saxophone and heads to the big city where he lands a gig at The Zoo playing this jumping lively sound. The crowds love him! This is where he is meant to be and everything seems perfect. That is until a certain weasel becomes jealous. He is none too thrilled about Alligator Slim stealing his fans, and makes sure that Slim won’t be able to perform. Native Texan Samuel E. Pittman II earned a Bachelor of Arts in English from Texas A&M University and his poetry has been published in several journals. A former teacher of the year he coaches track and enjoys his role as a middle school language arts teacher.
