Based on the story "The Fox and the Star" by Coralie Bickford-Smith, Ariya innovated her own story called "The Tiger and his Stripes"...

"The Tiger and his Stripes"

Far, far away in Southern Asia, deep in the vast, baron and sweltering hot jungles of India, there once lived the most majestic cat (and the largest) of all its family, the Tiger. Tiger was still a small cub and his prowling and pouncing technique needed much more practice, however, his beautiful, camouflaged and stripy coat allowed him to get very close to his prey. Tiger loved his shiny, bright fur that blended into his surroundings. 

Tiger felt almost invisible because of his stripes. He moved with such grace and pride like no other animal in the jungle. He waited impatiently for his prey to pass, listening carefully and observing everything intently with his glittering, gleaming glowing feline eyes. He enjoyed lurking in the shadows, creeping up on his prey, deadly and silently killing them with one single swipe. 

Tiger felt compeltely ecstatic after an ambush and a successful kill (even though he had only killed a tiny mouse). He was on top of the world AND the top of the food chain. He thought he was the most fearsome and terrifying tiger cub in all the world.

But one evening, something strange and peculiar happened to Tiger..."
