-Excerpt-

 They turned back and looked around. They were surprised to see…

“A baby gorilla, that’s a baby gorilla! It’s so cute,” Ben said, walking to it.

“Stop, Ben! Surely the mother is not too far from her baby,” said Tony.

Just then, the mother gorilla appeared behind the baby, looking at the boys aggressively.

“Oh… she doesn’t look very happy! Put down the bananas,” Tom ordered.

“We need to leave immediately,” said Ben.

“Don’t be so scared again Ben,” said Tom.

“I’m not scared, but you can admit she doesn’t look like a Teddy Bear.”

It was the mum’s turn to pick up rocks.

“Oh! And guess who’s going to get these rocks now?” Ben replied.

“Yeah, you’re right. What can we do?” asked Tony.

“Go into the forest and climb up the first big tree we see?” Ben answered.

“No way, a gorilla can climb trees!” replied Tom.

“Oh! You’re right.”

They were turning around, not knowing where to hide or what to do. The gorilla made some steps towards them, growling. The kids stepped back into the forest, ready to run but they froze in horror.
“Oh oh! We have an unexpected visitor here!” said Tom.

A big tiger was slowly walking, looking at them.

“Not funny,”  replied Ben, shaking.

The kids stepped back. Behind them, the gorilla turned back to look after her baby. The tiger started to growl. The gorilla mother and the tiger stared at each other, the kids standing between both.

“This place is very dangerous. We have to get out of here!” said Ben anxiously.

“Keep quiet! Otherwise, the tiger will run after us. Let’s get out of here quietly,” Tony murmured.

The gorilla showed its anger at the tiger. It shouted a long cry.
