The Fairy Godmother’s Gift

For her birthday her Godmother hid the rulebook.

So she climbed trees in her tutu and tamed dragons with tea parties. She wrote stories of steampunk ponies, and styled her fashion dolls into eleven inch Boudiccas.

And her Fairy Astronaut Godmother smiled and said ‘Job done.’
