Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

There is perhaps no better loved, no more universal story than Cinderella. Almost every country in the world has a version of it, but the favorite of story-tellers is the French version by Charles Perrault.

This translation is excellent for story-telling and also for reading aloud. Marcia Brown's illustrations are full of magic and enchantment from the little cupids putting back the hands of the clock to the last scene at the palace. They are pictures that will stay in a child's mind.

Synopsis:

"The pages sparkle with exquisite artwork and lovely colors". — The New Yorker

"A perfect picture book. The text...(has) a pertness, a kind of sauciness, that refreshes and at the same time reflects its French origin". — Saturday Review

"This favorite of all fairy tales has been given a lively retelling, made truly magical by some of the most exquisite pictures you ever saw". — Chicago Sunday Tribune

Synopsis:

In her haste to flee the palace before the fairy godmother's magic loses effect, Cinderella leaves behind a glass slipper.
