A Child's Story: Junior Alligator Hero

Updated on May 8, 2012

A Child's Story : Junior Alligator , Hero

Chapter 1

Once upon a time there was a great forest.In the middle

of the forest there was a large swamp, can you guess what

was in the middle of that swamp?It was an alligator family.

There was Daddy Alligator , a large ferocious looking

creature, Mommy Alligator ,almost as ferocious looking,

then there was Baby Alligator .He resembled his father

too much to make any friends..

Now poor Junior Alligator was a lonesome little fellow.

He had no friends at all . Day after day after day it was

all the same.It was hard to amuse oneself all of the time.

In that forest there was a lot of animals .The young of

the families would have played with Junior,but they ,too,

had Mommies and Daddies . They always warned "Play

as much as you like but don't ever go near the water."

The children didn't like that very well and grumbled."I'm

not afraid of any old alligator,"bragged Teddy Bear.Even

Susie Rabbit said timidly,"I don't think they are as mean as

they look."

Teddy said ,importantly,"Let's go and try to make friends

with Junior Alligator."

The other children looked at each other ,they all wanted

to go but was afraid to disobey their parents. Teddy was a

little upset and told them smartly, "All right ,you 'fraidy cats

stay here,I'll go by myself."

So he started off bravely toward the swamp,but soon he

was walking slower and slower,all the while he was fuming to

himself,"Why do I always have to open my big mouth?."

Junior Alligator saw Teddy coming and he hurried to tell his

Mother and Father the good news.He was going to have

someone to play with at long last, They all hurried to see

who was brave enough to come to the swamp. They

opened their big mouths to call out a welcome to their

visitor, but poor Teddy didn't understand, he thought

how fast those big jaws could devour him and he

turned and he ran as fast as his little legs could carry
