Alfie's 100 Word Challenge

In the night zoo standing in front of me was the most fascinating creature I had ever seen before, its walks slowly like an elephant and snaps its jaws ferociously at whoever comes too close. He has an Alligator’s head and the body of a Zebra. Its legs are big and bulgy and has cheetah spots. Its tail is blue like a gentle flowing stream and it’s five miles long! Furthermore, its claws are razor sharp and about 10 cm long! This is not an animal you could have as a pet, so do not go too close, it’s very dangerous.


  1. Hi Alfie,
    we thought your 100WC is great. You had some great adverbs in there.
    From Poppy and your sister Amy!!

  2. Alfie, this is a great 100WC entry. You write descriptively, add humour and include similes in your writing. 5 miles long, wow! I don't think I want this creature as a pet, it wouldn't even fit in my town, let alone my house! Thanks for your entry! Clare Powell (Team 100WC)

    Well done Alfie-this is brilliant! We love your description of this creature but not sure we would like to meet it...just incase!!

    I have no intention of going too close Alfie! I really like your simile of the tail as a "gentle flowing stream." It made the picture in my mind complete.

    Well done!
