Lee | 3 comments Plot--Little boy is home bound with some illness and starts receiving letters from an unknown source. When he is recovered, he gets to look out the window and discovers an alligator (or crocodile) dressed as a mail courier has been delivering letters to him.

Year read--in the early half of the 90's?

Thanks for the help! This is a favor for my mother-in-law, so I don't know the hard details about the book.
