Text from the story:
"What's that noise?" Maggie whispered. She pulled her sleeping bag up to her chin.
"What noise?" Ben sat up.
It was dark inside the tent. Maggie listened. She heard the wind. She heard water splashing in the creek. She heard something else, too.
"There!" she said. "Did you hear it?"
Ben opened his eyes very wide. "I heard it," he said. "Maybe it's a gorilla."
"Maybe it's a bear." Maggie sat up.
"Maybe it's an alligator," Ben said.
"Shh." Maggie listened. Ben was quiet.
The noise came again. It sounded like the roar of a wild animal.
Maggie shivered. "Let's call Mom."
"MOM!" Maggie and Ben yelled.
They heard a zipper. Their tent opened and Mom looked in.
"What's wrong?" she said.
"We heard a noise," Maggie said. "It sounded like a wild animal."
