Why The Kiwi Can’t Fly

Once upon a time there was a hungry kiwi that lived in a forest with a furious lion. The lion had two mean eyes that glowed in the dark. He lived in a scary cave in the corner of the forest where the rocks tumbled down off the cliff.

One day Kiwi was searching for food in the forest when the lion spied Kiwi’s footprints in the mud. Lion quietly followed the footprints that lead him to the pond. He saw Kiwi eating juicy worms. Kiwi heard a noise so he looked through the leaves and saw the lion’s tail sweeping backwards and forwards under a bush. He knew Lion would be hungry so he ran as fast as he could go. But Lion was very fast. He was faster than Kiwi. Lion reached out and stretched his long sharp claws and got Kiwi’s right wing.

Blood came pouring out. Kiwi screamed as loud as he could. Terrified he tried to fly away but his wing was injured. Lion laughed as Kiwi started to run. He was only teasing the kiwi. He didn’t want to eat him but he was a bully. So because of the mean way that Lion treated Kiwi, kiwi’s can no longer fly.

Hi Leroy, I have been enjoying reading your version of why kiwis can't fly. A very original twist with a kiwi and a lion in the same forest! I also like your graphic. Well done.
