How the Lion got its Roar

A myth submitted to the site by Maisie J


One day in the middle of summer a lion was sleeping in a cave in the middle of a jungle. Right next to the cave there was a tree that a monkey lived in. In the jungle there were lots of other trees and also lots of other monkeys and snakes. It was quite cold because of the amount of trees - it was so shady.

The lion was very big and very brave but the only thing was he wasn’t that scary because he did not roar. In those days he only squeaked!

Then when he was fast asleep the monkey creped over to and tied his tail to a tree. After about five minutes he awoke and tried to walk away but he was not going anywhere, he got in to such a rage that he gave out a massive ROAR! All the other lions wanted it because it scared all the other animals away.

That’s how the lion got its ROAR!

If the lion was sleeping in a cave, how could his tail have been tied to a tree? Last time I checked, i didnt see any trees inside of any caves. ;-;

In my opinion it was too short. Well written but short. I also don't get the part about "It was quite cold because of the amount of trees - it was so shady.", it doesn't add anything to the story except make the story longer.
