Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Elegant paintings of a cavernous castle and an enchanted countryside distinguish this retelling of the transformed maiden. Ages 5-8.
Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information, Inc.

From Booklist

From the plump pumpkins on the endpapers, to the shifty-eyed stepmother and Cinderella's vibrant ball gown, Koopmans' delicate watercolors provide yet another visual rendering of the familiar tale. Bell's smooth translation follows the traditional story. As Cinderella rides to the palace, her coach radiates light, and Cinderella herself is a blaze of color in her vibrant yellow gown in the brightly lit ballroom. The art lacks Marcia Brown's strong line, Diane Goode's distinctive facial expressions, James Marshall's rumpled goofiness, and Susan Jeffers' graceful elegance, but it is unusual in one respect. Instead of a maidenly Cinderella and manly prince, both protagonists are portrayed as prepubescent children. This unusual interpretation, which will charm some and disturb others, is best suited for larger collections. Linda Perkins --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Hardcover
This is one of the best retold stories of Cinderella out there. The story is clear and one that students grades 2 - 4 would benefit from reading, both for enjoyment and to boost their reading skills. The illustrations are lighthearted, colorful and pleasant, contrasting with the somewhat forbidding and fearsome illustrators of other fairy tales. This makes the book even more appropriate reading for the younger child as throughout the story there is a more hopeful tendency towards Cinderella's eventual outcome. I'm definitely ordering a few for my second grade classroom.

I chose this book for my granddaughter based on other reviews because it was said to be a translation of the original story that was written by a French author. The illustrations are excellent except for one thing - Cinderella does not look "one thousand times more beautiful" than her ugly stepsisters in the illustrations. Might this teach a young girl that beauty may lie in what one wears? Although the story contained a few words (such as "wicked") I had to explain to my four year old granddaughter, she told me she liked it.

I love Cinderella stories and each year it seems my students share the love. They get a kick out of the many different versions available now. This one is the classic of classics.
