All who love folktales and many fairy tale versions of Cinderella will enjoy this unique retelling from cultures throughout the world. The story begins in one country and follows the many versions to acquaint lovers of folktales with only a few of the more than 1500 versions available in our world. Paul Fleischman and Julie Paschkis performed a masterful task using at least 15 versions in the creation of this book. The illustrations add so much to the story.
I recommended this to the local school librarian and also gave this book as a gift to a very special princess for her First Communion.
