The Bear in the Room Next Door
One night I was woken by a strange snuffling, snorting sound. I thought it was a bear! So I carefully turned on the light and … PHEW! It wasn’t a bear after all. But that gave me an idea for my next story, about a boy called Josh who hears a bear in his parents’ bedroom late one night, so decides to try and catch it. I don’t know if I’d be as brave as Josh. I’d probably pull the blankets over my head and hope the bear didn’t EAT me! What would you do if you heard a bear in the room next door?
