Homer’s Newest Book is Carrying Albert Home!



by Homer Hickam
is the story of a classic love triangle.

 Homer (the author’s father) loves Elsie.

 Elsie (the author’s mother) loves Albert. Simple.

 Except there’s a difference to this ménage à trois, a rather large, scaly one. Albert is, well, an alligator.

 This is a story about Elsie and Homer’s epic adventure with the alligator named Albert (and, for no apparent reason, a rooster), where everything is true, except the bits that are made up.

 Told with the warmth and down-home charm that made Rocket Boys a beloved bestseller, Homer Hickam’s rollicking novel is truly a testament to that strange and marvelous emotion we call love.
