Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From Algonquin Indian folklore comes one of the most haunting, powerful versions of the Cinderella tale ever told.

In a village by the shores of Lake Ontario lived an invisible being. All the young women wanted to marry him because he was rich, powerful, and supposedly very handsome. But to marry the invisible being the women had to prove to his sister that they had seen him. And none had been able to get past the sister's stern, all-knowing gaze.

Then came the Rough-Face girl, scarred from working by the fire. Could she succeed where her beautiful, cruel sisters had failed?

Synopsis:

From the Algonquin Indians comes an unusual and touching version of the Cinderella story. In their village lives an invisible being whom all the young women want to marry, because it is said that he is powerful and handsome. But only the rough-face girl, burned and scarred from tending the fires, has the vision to see him in every part of the natural world. Full-color illustrations.

I love this book, i read this book when i was in 1st grade i think... i still remember the whole story... the only thing i didn't remember was the title.. there are stories that have the same story line. Like Sootface: An Ojibwa Cinderella Story.. about the same but alittle different in it's own ways...
