Long, long ago there was a poor girl named Polly who lived next to a beach. She had a strange little cottage but she was happy. Early one morning, Polly went for a walk to collect shells. She collected flat shells, curved shells and thin shells. Suddenly, Polly found the most beautiful shell she had ever seen lying next to a rock pool. There was also a rusty bike which was glistening in the sun. Slowly, Polly bent down to pick up the shell. To her amazement the shell spoke.
“ I will grant you two wishes so choose wisely,” said the magnificent shell.
