The Garden Games

The Garden Games The Book

The Garden Games
By Coleman Weeks, Jolei, Koleman, Madison, and Savana Wrightson
Orange sunshine soaked the treetops, drenched the branches, and cast light on the shady jungle floor below. There a breeze cooled a one-minute-old lioness. Her name is Angelina; and all of the jungle awaited her arrival since the lions rule their world. A jungle crowded with trees, plants, and full of animals, all to be Angelina’s friends. She will find a new way to live in her jungle and this is the subject of our story.
Being a lioness cub Angelina could eat whom she pleased, but from a very young age, she preferred vegetables. She dined with Elephants at breakfast and during the day; she might snack with the many grass- eating herds or her friends the Giraffes and Zebra in the tree groves for dinnertime. Her giraffe friends were happy feeding her treats from high in the trees where only they could reach.
Her best friend Troy was with her most of the time eating the goodies that came their way. Since she was a baby cub, the young chimpanzee played with her and she never ate him or anyone else.
In the beginning, some of the jungle cats and dogs were prejudiced against Angelina. They did not understand her not eating jungle animals but she paid them no mind, she would not eat her friends. The jungle always lived in fear of the Lion Pride and, for a while, Angelina’s strange ways puzzled them.
She enjoyed fun-filled days with Troy, foraging for fruit and mischief. Being a Chimpanzee Troy ate fruit, bark, and tree leaves so he was relieved Angelina did not eat her friends. She played all day and they gathered many other animals of the jungle to play “Hide and seek” or “Kick the Can” or “tag”.
They enjoyed climbing trees for hard to reach fruit or to have fun playing with their friends. As the time passed, most of the jungle considered Angelina and her sidekick Troy family.
Everybody played together most afternoons and the games lasted until dark. Always ready to play, Troy and Angelina kept the games going day after day and more came to play. The laughter of the jungle is the music they all partied to, and the days seemed to last forever.
