Fortunately, the child-bear encountered a wizard who turned him/her back to normal.
Unfortunately, the wizard demanded the child's soul in exchange for the transformation.
Fortunately the child had no soul
Unfortunately, that puts the child in debt until they can get a soul.
Fortunately the child was able to harvest one of the many souls growing nearby, brushing sticky cobweb like fronds from it and handing it to the wizard.
A soul looks like a theatre mask that somehow is laughing and crying at the same time.
Unfortunately, the fronds were a trap of a large and extremely aggressive carnivorous plant.
Fortunately, this particular carnivorous plant could only sense beings with souls, hence why it grew on the soul in the first place
Unfortunately, the child caught hepatitis from the plant's filthy fronds.
Fortunately, the Wizard offered to help again.
Unfortunately, the wizard demanded the child's soul for the cure spell.
Fortunately the child was able to find a random passerby in the forest to offer as payment.
Unfortunately, both the wizard and the passerby were infested with fleas and ticks.
Fortunately the bear, now tick and flea-free, returned with bug spray.
Unfortunately, it was in a child-proof container.
Fortunately, the child had a hacksaw and was able to open it with the saw.
Unfortunately the saw was a hack, and published a badly researched, lazy article about the whole situation that really annoyed anyone who clicked on the sensationalist headline.
Fortunately the child had learned about clickbait.
Unfortunately, they did not learn about jailbait
Fortunately, the child's charges got thrown out due to an obscure legal loophole involving exposure to a wizard, rain, plants, a bear, and pests.
Unfortunately, the case was taken to civil court to assess damages.
