About the book

Canalligator' is set in the canals of Birmingham and tells the tale of Casey, an unlikely reptile hero and his friendship with four young people, as he takes on an heroic mutant alligator that lives in the Birmingham canals. The combination of verse and graphic is quite unique and a QR code at the start of each chapter takes you to the author’s YouTube channel where the reader can view a short film about each chapter.
