Long, long ago there was a poor girl called Polly who lived next to the beach. She had a strange, little cottage. Early one morning, Polly went for a walk with a rusty bike. She collected flat shells, curved shells and thin shells. Slowly, Polly bent down to collect shells. Suddenly, Polly found the most beautiful shell she had ever seen. To her amazement, the shell spoke lying next to a rock pool. ‘I will grant you 2 wishes so choose wisely!’ said the magnificent shell. But she was happy.
