The Magnificent Missing Tiger

Once upon a time, a little tiger called Margaret was born in Antrim hospital. Her mother was killed by an eagle. So she swore to get her revenge.

One day while she was out playing, she saw an eagle, called Harry, trying to swoop down and catch her. Margaret swiftly dodged out of the way.

One day Margaret discovered a portal. The portal could make her talk. She wasn’t going to go in, but then the eagle pushed her in. Margaret found herself inside the portal where she met a unicorn, named Samantha.

"Woahhhh, where am I? This is amazing!" Margaret exclaimed.

A few minutes later, Samantha shouted over, "Hey new pal, do you need a place to stay tonight?"

"If I can’t find a way out of here, then yes." Replied Margaret. 

Margaret had an idea that her and Samantha should jump over a rainbow. If Margaret and Samantha could get over it, then all the animals could speak to humans.

Halfway across the rainbow, Margaret lost her balance and fell off. Suddenly Samantha caught her by the tail. Her tail was slowly slipping out of her mouth. She fell out of the unicorn’s mouth and landed beside a leprechaun and a pot of gold. 

"Oh laddie, I didn’t see you there. You fell into me pot o’ gold."

But then Margaret realised that Samantha was nowhere to be seen…
