Tiger by the Sea

This is a new children’s series I’m working on called, “Crayon Tales”. Stories and poems generated from the wonderful drawings of children. I hope you enjoy it!


Tommy Tiger by Avery age 7

Tiger by the Sea

Tommy Tiger lives by the sea, on a patch of green grass next to a gumdrop tree.

“The sea?” you say with humor and glee.

Yes indeedy, and he’s as happy as happy can be.

Tommy once lived in a big ol’ zoo, but he hated cages…wouldn’t you?

Tommy had dreams of sand between his toes, a warm ocean breeze tickling his nose.

So away he ran from the zoo so cold, at least that’s the story I was told!

Tommy had friends that joined him each night, a crab and a lobster each snuggle in tight.

I bet they made a very funny sight!

Tommy Tiger is happy by the sea, just look at his smile – don’t you see?

So the next time you’re sitting by the ocean in the sand;
think of Tommy Tiger and his life so grand!
