One day, three little raccoons named Junior Ricky and Rosie were walking home when they smelled some tasty honey. They decided to follow the scent the sweet smell of the honey led them to a big, dark cave.
The raccoons ran into the cave and scattered in three different directions to look for the honey.
Rocky scurried to a large dark lump. The smell of honey was strongest there. Rocky was really excited. His eyes went wide and his whole body tingled! He opened his mouth as wide as it could go and took a big bite of bear! Oh No! It wasn’t honey at all! Rocky got a mouthful of gross, furry, fuzzy, dry bear hair!
Joe the bear jerked awake. ”What the heck just happened? Who are you, why are you here, and why are you biting me?”
“I thought you were a big lump of honey,” squeaked Rocky in a high scared voice. Then he turned and ran to the middle of the cave, calling for his siblings. “Junior! Rosie! We have to get out of here. I accidentally bit a bear and now he’s going to eats us!”
“I’m sorry you think that way but I’m not going to eat you!” said the bear sleepily.
“You’re lying! You are going to eat us!” said Rocky.
Joe opened his mouth in a big yawn. Rocky yelled, “Run! He’s going to eat us!”
“No!” said Joe. “I was just yawning. You woke me up and I’m still sleepy.”
Rocky and his siblings ran out of the cave, looking for a small place to hide where the bear couldn’t get them. They ran for the forest but as they were crossing the street, they tripped and fell into a sewer.
“Oh no!” said Rosie, “the bear is coming to eat us!”
“No I’m not,” said Joe. Instead, he pulled them out.
The four animals went back to Joe’s cave where they ate honey and became friends.
