Long, long ago there was a poor girl called 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 with a rusty bike to collect shells. Suddenly, Polly found the beautiful shell she had ever seen which was glistening in the sun lying next to a rock pool! To her amazement, the shell spoke. “I will grant you two wishes so choose wisely!” said the magnificent shell.
