All Bartleby has ever known is life in his plastic bowl. Then his boy chucks him into the big water place. There Bartleby faces challenges both fearful and thrilling. He also meets another discarded pet-Seezer-an alligator whose true home is the Mighty Mississippi, too. Seezer wants Bartleby to help him seek out the great river. But can a small turtle trust a growing alligator? "The most redoubtable animal character down the pike since Avi's Poppy."-Booklist Junior Library Guild Selection
