KIDSBOOKS | AXIE THE SALAMANDER

There once was a salamander 
That lived near Mexico City
She had baby pink feathery gills
And was really rather pretty

She was called Axolotl
After the ancient Aztec god
Who changed into a salamander
To avoid the blade of the sword

But Axie was a wise amphibian
She was already ten years old
She swam in the waters of her lake
Eating larvae, fish and worms

Axie also had a brother
He was called Axie-2
He’d swim about and gaily shout
At tadpoles that hatched anew

But when there was danger
From birds and Axo-catchers
The Axo siblings hid away
In the depths of their lake waters

So if you’re ever roaming around
The lakes of Mexico City
You might just see the Axie twins
So have your camera ready!
