Reggie The L.A. Gator!
On a summer day in Southern California, an alligator was first seen in a Los Angeles park lake. Twelve days later, the two men responsible for releasing the non-California native, pet alligator named Reggie, were arrested and the news became a global media event. This is Reggie’s story.
the most famous alligator in the world!
Sharing a backyard pond with three other reptiles is Reggie, a big, clumsy alligator who is teased and excluded. Outgrowing his home, Reggie is dumped into Machado Lake where he makes new friends who accept him for himself.
Reggie’s release inspired best-selling and award-winning author Angi Ma Wong, to pen and illustrate this touching story of rejection, abandonment and exclusion that leads to self-discovery and hope.
“ . . . cleverly transformed Reggie and his adventures into a neat piece of children’s literature.”
—Dr. Bill Chun-Hoon, Principal, Castelar Elementary School
“ . . . give kids a unique Reggie-eyed view of things, with some important life lessons on compassion and kindness.”
A lifelong educator who is passionate about family literacy, Angi Ma Wong has authored more than twenty titles, including her first children’s book, Night of the Red Moon, a John and Patricia Beatty Award nominee, Who Ate My Socks? and fifteen on feng shui. She is a wife, mother of four, two-time cancer survivor and an adoptee who related to Reggie’s experience. Angi is a popular speaker and trainer who has appeared on OPRAH, Regis and Kelly, CBS Sunday Morning and in TIME.
