Aha. Tell me what I need to change. But this is for my assignment. :D Changing a
fairytale to make it modern-ish.
There once was a lady who wanted a child to care for. She went to the adoption agency
and found a child. She named her Lina. They had a neighbor who was a wtich a very
mean witch she never liked it when people were happy. She was making a shrink ray to
One day the witch had completed it. She put her magic into it and aimed it at Lina
when she was playing. Lina shrunk and she screeched in horror. A car was coming very
fast and poor Lina could move only a little bit. The tires missed her though! She was
running to the sidewalk and saw er mom. "Lina, Lina where are you?" Lina was still
running and to her mother and grabbed onto her clothes.
Her mother thought there was an ant or some bug on her and almost squished it but it
was Lina. "Oh my Lina you are the size of my thumb!" And her mother had began calling
her Thumbelina. Thumbelina was talking but she was barely heard. Her mother bought a
blowhorn for her to use. It worked, they were both able to hear each other.
One nihght frogs were hopping along and noticed Thumbelina. They took her so she
could marry their thirdson. she was put on a leaf and was held by grass. When she
awoke, she screamed "Where am I?!" The frogs stayed hidden but when they were going
to get her a current took her away.
She was now near birds and made friends with them. They told her of what they saw in
others houses such as what they saw on television and on the computer. Thumbelina
wanted to see what was on television but she couldn't. Her bird friends found a radio
and turned it on. Thumbelina enjoyed the songs and danced to them. Winter came and
the birds flew away. Thumbelina was quite sad and very cold. She found a cave and a
mouse came out.
"Oh hello there. Who are you?" Thumbelina looked up and responded "I'm Thumbelina. I
don't want to be a burden but might I have something to eat?" The mouse had said yes
and also offered Thumbelina a place to stay during the winter.
Thumbelina was glad and helped the mouse in her jobs around the house. She was able
to watch television and enjoy music. But when spring came Thumbelina had gave her
thanks and continued on her journey.
She found a toy airplane and it seemed to be working. She then gound the remote for
it and strapped it on the airplane. She jumped on and tried to operate it but she
landed in a bunch of tulips. There she found others her size.
She saw a boy and exclaimed he was handsome. The boy saw her and was very stunned she
was very beautiful. He proposed to her and she said yes. They didn't like the name
Thumbelina and so they changed it to Maia. The plane still worked and every so often
she went to visit all her friends she made.
