To be sure the roaring and the
howling aroused all the other Animal
Folks, and out of their houses they
flew in time to see Timmy Tom Tiger
in his gorgeous new striped coat go
plunging about this way and that way
roaring roars that sent shivers of
fright all down their back-bones. AH
of them were so terrified that they
bounced back Into the house In a Jiffy.
They peeked through a tiny crack In
the door, though, and at first they
.bought it waa a strange and terrible
new Beast raging outside. But pres
ently one by one would say, "It Isn't
it CAN'T BE IT I ZZZZZZZZZZ pos

a new coat did ou ever see anything
so stylish ohhh Isn't he terrifying!!!!
And they shivered and shook at their
i own front doors like ao many bowls
full of gelatine.
Little by little Timmy Tom Tiger
I saw that the Animal Folks were a.11
eyeing HIM out of the cracks In their
front doors, and that they were afraid
of HIM! AFRAID OF HIM! Gentle,
meek, plain, very plain Timmy Tom
Tiger! Aa he slowed down his pace
he caught sight of hlruelf and his
stripes In a little pool In the Jungles
and suddenly he KNEW WIIT. JOY,
oh Joy I
He stopped. He sat down on his
haunches. He sat with dignity. Pres
ently he picked up a patty-paw and
licked It Just as If nothing had hap
pened. One by one the Animal Folks
stepped gingerly out of their front
doors and began walking gingerly In
circles all around Timmy Tom Tiger.
But from that day on Timmy Tom
Tiger with his striped coat waa the
very leader of fashion In Iho Jungle.
Nobody DARED give a party without
asking him first of all. And did he
ever keep the Animal Folk' children
again while the fathers and mothers
