Here is Troy H's retelling:
Once upon a time there were three bears. A great big papa bear, a middle-sized mama bear and a little baby bear. They lived in a cottage in the woods. One day a little girl named Suzy got caught by the three bears but she escaped.
Maia wrote a new story:
Once upon a time there were three stars and a human that rode in a spaceship in space. The human found the three stars walking on the moon. Their names were Jazmine, Tarelle and Te Kawana and when the human became the boss they all lived happily ever after.
