Nobody knew where she came from, but for as long as the children could remember, the fairy doll had been at the top of the Christmas tree. She was just six inches high and dressed in a white gauze dress with beads that sparkled, and on her feet were silver shoes - not painted, but stitched. Elizabeth, the youngest of the children, examinedthe stitches and decided that fairy mice had sewn them.
Elizabeth was quite different from her brothers and sisters. She was clumsy, naughty, and not very clever. She couldn't even ride her bicycle - until the fairy doll took her in hand!
