When her mother dies, Cinderella's father remarries and now she lives with her new family; her father, new mother and two new wicked sisters. They are mean and unkind to Cinderella and she is treated no better than a house servant, cooking and cleaning for everyone else.

One day the two sisters are invited to a great ball to be given by the king and queen. Cinderella is unfortunately excluded.

Sitting sad and alone at home, she is visited by a great fairy! Her fairy godmother magically transforms Cinderella into a beautiful princess-like figure. She shall go to the ball!

At the ball Cinderella is the talk of the palace, admired for her beauty and grace. Alas, as midnight approaches, she must heed the fairy's warning and return home, but not before the king and queen have invited her to another ball the following night!

Again, she is the talk of the palace and soon she and the prince are quite in love! So much so that she quite forgets the time and rushes to leave before the clock strikes midnight. But in her haste she loses one of her glass slippers.

The prince is desperate the track her down, but only has her glass slipper!

But, the story doesn't end here. Will Cinderella and her prince be reunited or will the evils sisters succeed in their meddling? The Cinderella tale has enchanted generations of children and is a classic tale of the tussle between good and evil.

    " This older version of Cinderella sticks to the original classic story. The pictures are also sketched and drawn in an old world fashion. The colors are done in pshades of pastel. The illustartions are done as if they were paintings in a museum. I enjoyed this classic story, but felt the illustartions were a bit dull. "

    " This version stays true to the well-known story and is lavishly illustrated (winner of the Caldecott Medal). Cinderella is my daughter's favorite princess right now and I wanted something different from the Disney version. She's a patient listener and seemed to enjoy the familiar story, but the illustrations failed to captivate either of us. "

    " Caldecott Medal 1955 - I had mixed feelings about this one. I am not necessarily a big fan of Cinderella type fairy tales but this one seems even more sickly sweet than even Disney. It was interesting to read though and the copy I read was actually a signed copy by Brown. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Samantha | 12/30/2013

    " A kinder version of the Cinderella tale in which Cinderella marries her two step sisters off to two noblemen at the end. Pictures were comical, almost cartoony and were in full color every other page. I liked the color palette and this lighter tale, but I don't know that I loved the artwork. "

    " Another lovely book illustrated by Marcia Brown. Just don't expect Prince Charming to show up at your front door looking for you. "

    " Cinderella is about a girl who's life was getting ruled by her step mother and sisters until she found her true love got married and lived happily ever after "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Yates Marie | 11/28/2013

    " This book has a little different twist at the end of it. There are a lot of words on a page, so would be better for more advanced readers. There are some words in the book that younger students might have a problem reading. "

    " Errol le Cain has quickly become one of my favourite illustrators of all-time. I must find this book! Truly lovely work. "

    " Nice flow. Version of Cinderella that I am most familiar with. Illustrations are pretty, have a French feel to them. Stepsisters are forgiven by Cinderella for their pettiness. "

    " It's nice to read the story from the source. Some interesting things we have added and subtracted over the years. "

    " I also feel that any child or adult could enjoy Cinderella. It is such a classic that so many stories are based off of, however, I do feel it is very feminine. "
