Adelita: A Mexican Cinderella Story Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Hace mucho tiempo?a long time ago?there lived a beautiful young woman named Adelita. So begins the age-old tale of a kind-hearted young woman, her jealous stepmother, two hateful stepsisters, and a young man in search of a wife. The young man, Javier, falls madly in love with beautiful Adelita, but she disappears from his fiesta at midnight, leaving him with only one clue to her hidden identity?a beautiful rebozo? shawl. With the rebozo in place of a glass slipper, this favorite fairy tale takes a delightful twist. Tomie dePaola?s exquisite paintings, filled with the folk art of Mexico, make this a Cinderella story like no other.

Synopsis:

There's no pumpkin coach or glass slipper in sight, but Cinderella fans will find much to like in dePaola's original twist, infused with Mexican warmth and color. His liberal use of Spanish phrases (translated within the text) enlighten as they enliven. Full color.

Synopsis:

Poor Adelita! Night and day she slaves in the kitchen, and still her step-mother forbids her to attend Javier's party. But with the help of the old servant Esperanza, she disguises herself in a beautiful rebozo, or shawl, and wins Javier's heart. The next day Javier spies the rebozo in Adelita's window, and soon they live muy felices por siempre — happily ever after!

Based on Cinderella, Adelita is a wonderfully original story with a spicy Mexican flavor. Incorporating simple Spanish words against a stunning backdrop of Mexican colors and designs, Tomie dePaola has created an instant classic that will delight his many fans.
