Cinderella A Grimm's Fairy Tale by Jacob Grimm, Wilhelm GrimmWhen her widowed father remarries, beautiful Cinderella is left to cook and clean for her cruel stepmother and jealous stepsisters. On the day of the King's dance, Cinderella weeps when she is left behind. Hearing her sobs, her friends the birds bring her a glittering gown and silk slippers so she too can go to the dance. Will Cinderella be recognised? And will the Prince find his true bride? This beautifully imagined adaptation of the Brothers Grimm classic fairy tale is brought to life with Ulrike Haseloff's soft, colourful illustrations. Several pages have been finished with soft sparkles giving the book a magical feel.
'The pictures, even to the ship-in-full-sail hairdo on one stepsister, are based on 18th-century patterns and styles, and Cinderella's dress has a satisfying quantity of gold floral glitter. This Germanic Cinderella is simple, direct and rather sweet.'
'The hats Cinderella's sisters wear to the ball could have been worthy of Kate Middleton's wedding. And on two picture of Cinderella's ballgown, golden sparkly bits appear -- literary an interesting touch!'
