When I Saw a Lion

When I Saw a Lion

by Alex Edwards

Clang! The car bounced on the dirt road. We’re on our way to see a lion!


When it was two hours later, it felt like two years. We stopped at 6 o’clock to stop and see the sunset.


After an hour, we went to see a lion. When we saw the lion, I was scared and surprised. It was cute and cuddly, but I wouldn’t go out and cuddle with it.


It was the best day ever. I wish I could see the lion again.

The End

Note: This story was written by my young son, Alex, after our June 2011 trip to South Luangwa National Park in Zambia, a country in Southern Africa. The lion in the photo is the same one that inspired him to write this story.

    Thanks, glad you liked it! Alex was happy to hear that readers liked his story. I told him he did a good job. He says he doesn’t like to write (he like math and science like his mom), but I know he has it in him.
