Claire was a beautiful little girl with only one small (well, big) problem – she was chubby. She was often teased at school because of her weight. 

Claire是个漂亮的小女孩,只是有一个小问题(好吧,不小),就是她比较胖。在学校,Claire常常因为她的体重被别人取笑。




She longed to be like all of the skinny girls in her class who wore cute clothes. Everything fit them perfectly.

她一直想和班上的其他女孩子一样瘦,能跟她们一样穿上好看又合适的衣服。


When her mom took her shopping, Claire couldn't go into the normal stores at the mall. Instead, she had to go to special stores for "bigger" kids. The clothes there were never as cute as the ones her classmates wore.

每次Claire的妈妈带她去购物,她都没法儿去商场那些一般的店铺。相反的是,她得去专卖“大儿童”衣服的店铺,这些店里的衣服都不如Claire的同学们穿的那样好看。



The night of her 10th birthday, however, everything changed. Claire was visited by a fairy godmother. She had no idea that she even had one! 

然而,Claire10岁生日的那个晚上,一切都不可思议地改变了。一个神仙教母现身在Claire面前,而她从来没想过她居然有一个神仙教母!


Her fairy godmother told her that she would grant her one wish for her very special 10th birthday. 

Claire的神仙教母告诉她,可以在她十岁生日这天满足她一个愿望。


Claire immediately knew that she wanted to wish to be skinny like all of her classmates. The fairy godmother was reading her mind and spoke out. 

Claire脑中立刻就想到许愿让自己变得跟她的同学们一样瘦。神仙教母看穿了Claire的想法,并把她的想法说了出来。




The fairy godmother cautioned, "Think very, very hard about your wish. You do not want to wish for a selfish desire. Instead, think of something that can benefit more people than just yourself."

神仙教母告诫Claire,一定要非常非常认真地许这个愿望。不要只想着许一个自私的愿望,相反地,想想什么愿望能造福更多的人,而不单单是你自己。


Claire thought very hard for a while and finally decided that she would wish for the talent to become a fashion designer. That way, she could design cute and fun clothes for girls who were bigger than normal girls, like herself. 

Claire很认真地想了一会儿,最后决定她想拥有成为时尚设计师的才能。这样的话,她就能设计可爱又有趣的衣服,给那些像她这样比普通女生体格大些的女孩了。



Her fairy godmother was very pleased with Claire's decision. She immediately granted her wish. 

神仙教母为Claire的决定感到非常高兴。她马上满足了Claire的这个愿望。


As soon as the fairy godmother left, Claire had an incredible urge to draw. She quickly found paper and pencils, and began drawing the most beautiful clothing any young designer had ever imagined. 

神仙教母一离开,Claire就迫不及待地开始画设计图了。她飞快找来了纸和笔,开始画其他年轻设计师都想象不到的漂亮衣服。
