Once upon a time, there was a family of colourful mice, that were black, white, brown, yellow, red and even blue.

The dad and the mum of this big litter of mice were very proud of their children, especially with the diversity of colours that produced more colours when mixed, like green, orange, pink, beige and grey, making a magic and colourful prism which transmitted happiness to those who were sad,  just by looking at it.

In a faraway house lived a girl called Star. Her mum had called her Star because she said that some day would become a fairy:  “When you are older, you will become a fairy, and will fulfill your wishes just by touching your forehead”, she had said.

Star was a beautiful girl who had long, wavy reddish-brown hair. Her big green eyes illuminated her cute face, and her look transmitted kindness. Her stepmother detracted from her beauty. She was living with Star and forced her to do hard work inappropriate for her age, but Star used to do it so as not to be punished and shouted at by that old woman who never hesitated to mistreat her.
