The Slithering Goliath
Twelve-year-old Bailey Best talks her way into working at her uncle’s animal rescue center. What’s not to love? Care for amazing animals. Earn money to help pay for a dream vacation. And best of all, get back at her younger brother for the worst betrayal of all time.
She celebrates a little early however because helping out at the rescue isn’t quite what she expected. That, and the giant snake named Goliath hungers for flesh.
William Oday’s love for animals shines through in this hysterical (and sometimes terrifying!) tale about a girl facing unintended consequences and learning about what really matters in life at the same time.
