Week 27 THE FLAMINGO By :Tadhg

Jake looked at the flamingo.
“Why is this flamingo orange?” he questioned.
“Nobody cares” said Tom the class bully.
“But it’s orange – it’s supposed to be pink”.
Jake thought that maybe it was a parttime secret agent and he got painted orange to stand out. Maybe he was a criminal and painted himself a different colour every time he did a robbery.  Or maybe he’s not actually a flamingo -maybe he’s a lion, a zebra, an owl or maybe even an elephant. Jake was confused  – why was the flamingo orange? He asked the zookeeper. The zookeeper said, “It was just born that way”.
“I still think it’s an elephant though”, said Jake happily.
