Jess the stripey tiger cub
Loved playing with her mummy,
Who’d roll her over on the floor
And tickle her on her tummy.
And sometimes they’d play hide and seek
And her sister would join in.
But she was just a baby
So Jess always let her win.
Now Jess was happy with her mum
And her baby sister Jade.
But though she loved them very much,
And all the games they played,
She sometimes got a little bored
And wanted something more.
She thought there must be more to life
Than rolling on the floor.
“I want to go exploring Mum
To find new friends,” she said.
“I’ll find some tigers just like me
And play with them instead.”
“That sounds like fun,” her mum replied,
“But be careful, don’t go far.
The world can be a scary place
When you don’t know where you are.”
