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