Ruby, age 9, was a finalist in our Twists & Turns contest.

Once upon a time there was a little girl named Goldie Locks. She was a very kind girl.  One day she went for a walk in the forest and decided to walk in a part of the forest she’d never  walked in before.  

But before long she got lost and didn’t know how to get back home. Then she saw a  clearing with a House in it. She decided to go knock on the door of the house to see if anybody  was home. KNOCK! KNOCK! She waited but no one answered. So she decided to try the door  knob. TWIST! TURN! It was unlocked so she thought someone was there. She yelled, “Hello! Is  anybody in there?” But no one answered so she closed the door and started looking for  whoever owned the house.  

Suddenly three bears walked out from part of the clearing. She screamed and ran away  from them a little. Then the little bear said, “It’s okay we won’t hurt you.” So Goldie Locks said,  “Okay, I’m lost and I don’t know how to get back home.” The biggest bear said, “Okay where do  you live?” She said, “At the edge of the forest.” So the little bear said, “Come with us. We will  show you the way home.” 

When they got back to her house, Goldie Locks thanked them and asked if she could do  anything to repay them. The middle bear said, “Once we get back to our house our porridge will  probably be cold.” So Goldie Locks asked her mom if she could make porridge for the three  bears. Her mother said yes so they all ate warm porridge together.
