Rewrite the story in third person. Think carefully about the atmosphere you would like to create at each point in the story. Describe:

- Her surprise and curiosity
- how the door opens (make it a bit sinister)
- the inside of the shop. What is strange?
- her reaching up for the doll. (Try to build suspense.)
- her trapped inside the doll and looking out from behind the glass eyes of the doll on the shelf.
Write the next part of the story. Who comes along next? What happens to them?
