Elena longs to follow in her father’s footsteps to become a glassblower. His response is disheartening, “Whoever heard of a girl glassblower?” But Elena is undeterred and she disguises herself as a boy. With her new identity and her hard work she becomes a successful apprentice in a glass factory. “Desperate to share her talent with her father, Elena blows out a giant bird and flies home, and Papa soon realises how special she is.”
