There's a Tiger in our Garden
1/22/2009 / Short Stories

"Daddy, Daddy, there's a tiger in our garden!"

"Really, I hope not Stevie. He might dig up the watermelon seeds."

"Should we feed the tiger so he won't come and eat us up?"

"Ok, you get Mummy's kitchen scrap-bucket and I'll put on my garden boots."

"I have my garden boots on too, Daddy. Look, Mummy tied the laces. Do you think tigers wear garden boots too, Daddy?"

"Well, we'll soon find out, my young tiger hunter. Up on my shoulders you go. You can be the lookout."

"Yippee! I can see the whole garden up here Daddy. Look!! Paw prints."

"It looks like the tiger has been out all night, son."

"Daddy do you think the tiger might be sleepin'?"

"Could be, we will have to keep very quite so we don't wake him."

"caw caw"

"Look Daddy, a crow. Let me down, coz he might get me. He could be the tiger's friend. He might tell him we're in the garden."

"Look Stevie, a lady bug. See how tiny her wings are?"

"Daddy, why do they call em' lady bugs?"

"I'm not sure. Maybe it's because they are so little. Look at her tiny wings."

"Oh look Daddy, the watermelon seeds are popping out."

"Yeah, they are. Feel the little green shoot, gently now. Soon it will grow along the grown into a big vine and we will have lots of watermelon to eat."

"Ooooh, yuck! Daddy, it's a snail."

"We can't have snails eating our seeds now can we. We should put him up on the scrap pile. He can't do any harm there."

"Come on Daddy, we have to feed the tiger."

"Ok, be careful where you walk. The garden is a bit overgrown near the shed. We might clean it up on the weekend. What do you think?"

"Oh no, Daddy! Where will the tiger live?"

"You have a point there, Stevie. Here we are. Empty the scraps onto the pile."

"Daddy, can we empty the scraps for Mummy tomorrow? There might be a dinosaur in our garden."
