Tommy dove into the ocean with the hope of catching the infamous striped tigerfish with whiskers three feet long. He swam deep into the salty waters, dodging the gigantic octopus, and avoiding its deadly stream of ink. He swam past the coral reefs, schools of fish, and the electric eel in search of his prize.

Finally, he heard the cry of the tigerfish and spotted his prey gliding through the water unaware of Tommy’s presence. He had to approach quickly or spoil his chance of capture.As he slowly swam closer with his net ready, he smelled the stench of rotting fish -- a sign that danger nearby. He turned just in time to see a great white shark barreling toward him. The killer fish’s mouth was open and his teeth stained with blood from his recent meal.

Tommy had to find shelter fast. He plunged deeper into the water and found safety in an underwater cave. He rested there on a cushion of seaweed waiting for the shark to swim on to find his next victim. Slowly, he floated up from the cave while keeping watch for the great white. The shark was gone, and Tommy was free to continue his mission.

Scanning his surroundings, he mastered the deep waters hoping again to get his chance at victory. At last, they met again. The tigerfish stared directly into his eyes. Tommy froze. He was unsure of his next move and careful not to startle the big fish. He kicked his feet, propelling forward and swung his net through the water capturing his opponent.

They struggled, flipping in circles as they fought, but Tommy was winning. He thought how delicious his catch was going to taste with a side of macaroni and cheese.

"Tommy! Hurry up in there it's time for bed." His mom's voice interrupted his adventure.

"Oh Mom, I had him. I had the striped tigerfish." Tommy climbed out of the bathtub.

His mom handed him a towel."You'll just have to catch him tomorrow," she said while checking for dirt behind Tommy's ears.

Tommy dried himself, slipped into his pajamas, and crawled into bed.

Mom tucked Tommy in and kissed him goodnight. "See you in morning."

Tommy closed his eyes and began his nightly adventure of hunting saber tooth tigers in the jungles of Africa.
