RAVI'S ROAR SUMMARY

The story Ravi’s Roar is about a boy named Ravi who is the smallest and youngest in his family. Normally being small doesn’t bother Ravi, until one day when his family goes to the park. 

They race to the train to go to the park and he is last so he has to be squished in a seat with his dad and dog. Then when they are at the park he can’t find anyone when they play hide and seek, can’t reach the monkey bars or jump between the logs, and is unable to go down the big slide. Ravi gets really really angry and his dad says they should go get ice cream. 

Ravi is last in line for the ice cream and there isn’t any left. He gets so angry that he turns into a tiger. When he is a tiger he can roar and growl at anyone and get what he wants. Soon Ravi realizes no one wants to play with him or be around him. He apologizes and his family forgives him and he never turns into a tiger again.
