How The Zebra Got Its Wish

By: Angela Y.

A long, long time ago zebras were just like horses. Then one day one of the horses did not want to be like the rest of them so the horse walked past a wish tree and said,''Wish tree, wish tree I need a wish please.'' ''Ok,'' said the tree, ''what is your wish?'' ''I want stripes on me and my family.'' The wish tree gave him his wish, and that is how zebras came to be.
