the Tiger was sitting in his box,
crying. " I want to get out of this box!
I want to explore the world!" he said.
So, as he sat there sobbing, he tried to
think of a plan. " I know! Well, no,
that will never work." he kept saying to
himself. Finally, he got so frustrated
he banged on the walls of his box. " I
WANT OUT OF HERE!" He yelled.
As quick as a wink, there went the
box tumbling off the table. As it
tumbled in midair, Tony flew out of the
box and out the open window. He landed
in a stream, which led to a waterfall.
he screamed for help, but it was
useless. Nobody could help poor Tony the
Tiger. Nobody but one sly and tricky
leprechaun. He lived under the waterfall
of which Tony was going to fall off. The
leprechaun quickly set up a net. Tony
screamed with horror as he fled down the
waterfall. " AHHHHHHHHHH!" He felt a

shall take it for him. it is a test of
strength and courage. If you pass, you
get the gold. If you fail, you die."
Tony thought for a few seconds, and
said he would take the test, and the
leprechaun said good with a snicker to
The day of the test was that very
day. The first part was to swing on the
vines across a lagoon of alligators, and
Tony had the strength to pass it! The
second was to balance on a stick across
a pile of snakes. Tony zoomed across the
stick with no trouble at all! The last
challenge was to face off against the
king of the jungle, which put up quite a
" RRROOOAAARR!" Yelled Tony as he got
a painful scratch on his back. But he
After a big struggle, he
finally won! He was crowned king of the

he found later, was stolen. He gave it
back to all the rightful owners and
lived happily and found a family.
