A complement to my previous puzzle.

Grace wanted to see them. Therefore, she wished that she was smaller.

"Them"= little animals?

Grace= animal? fictional character? doll?
Did she wish to be small to avoid being noticed? Would "they" eat Grace? Would Grace eat "them"?

Shot in the dark: They are ants, and Grace is a near-sighted anteater. XD

***** SPOILER *****

Grace is a cat chasing mice. Before she gets to catch any of them, they find refuge in a mouse hole in a wall. Grace wishes to be smaller so that she can crawl into the hole as well where she could see (and, well, ultimately catch and eat) them.


Well, I knew that this was going to be a bit of a no-brainer, but I kind of liked the idea of having a complement of my former puzzle. In case you're wondering, the title is based on the "Stonecutters", a club that Homer joins in one episode of The Simpsons. The episode also features the "No Homers Club" that didn't let Homer join, just like Grace can't join the mice.

Nice one! Love the idea of doing the "negative" of your last puzzle. :D
