SARAH'S NEW FRIEND!
Sarah and her parents and two younger brothers live in the jungle. Early every morning, she runs to her favourite mango tree and climbs it, so she can bring five mangoes from the top of the tree for her family to eat for breakfast.
One morning, she was sitting in the tree when she saw an enormous tiger below her. ‘Go away!’ she called. ‘I can’t come down until you go!’ But the tiger didn’t go away. It looked up at her and said, ‘Why?’ Sarah was very surprised! ‘Tigers don’t speak!’ she said. ‘Well, I do,’ the tiger answered. ‘I’m not dangerous. Climb down. Those mangoes look heavy. I’ll help you get home. You can ride on my back.’
Very slowly and very carefully, Sarah climbed down the tree. When she was on the ground again and looked into the tiger’s kind eyes, Sarah didn’t feel frightened. It was fun to ride on the tiger’s back. It stopped just outside the village. ‘I shouldn’t come near the houses,’ it said. ‘People are afraid of me!’
Sarah understood. She thanked the tiger and said goodbye.
‘You’re back quickly!’ her father said.
'Yes!' Sarah smiled. ‘I rode a tiger home!’
No-one believed Sarah but she didn't mind. She knew she had an exciting and really kind new friend, the tiger, and that made her very happy.
Here is an example: Sarah climbs …a mango tree… early every morning.
