I am Curlylocks. I have curly hair. One day I…

Answer :
I am Curlylocks. I have curly hair. One day, I was passing through the forest. In the meantime, I saw a small cottage. I was excited to know who lived inside the cottage. The cottage belonged to the Bear family. I went inside and found there was nobody at home.

I saw a table that had three bowls full of porridge. The big bowl was for Papa Bear, the middle-sized bowl was for Mama Bear, and the small bowl was for Baby Bear. Since I was hungry, I wanted to eat them, but the big bowl was too hot, and the middle-sized bowl was too cold. I checked the Baby Bear’s bowl and found it was perfect, and started eating. I went to the bedroom and saw three beds. The big bed for Papa Bear was too hard, the middle size bed for Mama Bear was too soft, but the tiny bed for Baby Bear was perfect. I fell asleep on the small bed.

After sometime, the family arrived home. When they saw that the bowls were empty, they became angry. Then they came to the bedroom and were shocked to see me sleeping on Baby Bear’s bed. When I saw the three bears in the room, I ran away from the house as fast as I could.
