    One thought on “Cinderella”

    1. A wonderful version of the traditional tale, as Cinderella is forced to slave at home, while her stepsisters bask in the glory of dances and the like. When a gift is bestowed on Cinderella, she is ready to make a name for herself, though rushes off when the clock tells her it is almost midnight. A second ball the next evening and Cinderella loses track of time only to lose a shoe. Neo liked this story and knows it well, I think. He noticed that a pumpkin was mentioned for the coach and had to as [...]

    2. Very nice illustrations that back a good retelling of Cinderella's story. Adaptation details in spoiler: (view spoiler)[No talking animals, Cinderella and the prince have long and pleasant conversations at the two balls she attends, and at the end the stepsisters are invited to live with Cinderella and don't have their eyes plucked out by crows. (hide spoiler)]I have heard of Galdone before but, near as I can gather, only as an illustrator for other author's stories for children. Will have to ke [...]

    3. This is the classic story of Cinderella, where tell the story of a girl who live with stepmom, and two step sisters. This version of Cinderella it is new to me, in which Cinderella went to the ball twice. The pattern in this story is the same, Cinderella has to live with her stepmom and stepsisters. They make her do all the hard work and make fun of her clothes. The interest of this story is the end, when Cinderella show kindness and generosity to her stepmom and stepsisters . This Folk Tale Cla [...]

    4. This version seems to be the most iconic and original of all the versions. What was interesting was that in this version Cinderella’s gown was again gold and not light blue like the Disney version portrays it. Also in this version Cinderella makes it home by midnight on the first night but it is the second night that she loses the glass slipper. In this version Cinderella has a very kind heart and when she is united with the prince she “brought her two stepsisters to live at the palace as we [...]

    5. Miss 2 and I like to explore different books at the library and try to get different ones out every week or so. This is a slightly longer version of the classic fairy tale - Cinderella goes to the ball on two different nights (losing her shoe on the 2nd). It was nice to see her in her some period-piece dresses (rather than looking like the Disney version). Shame that her father was still alive in this version - the tale always makes more sense to me when he's already died.

    6. At least he included the forgiveness of Cinderella to her sisters after it was all over. The story is actually a story of grace and forgiveness In my eyes. My six year old loves these illustrations.

    8. Cinderella retold by Paul Galdone is an appropriate story for children four to eight years of age. This version of Cinderella is similar to the original version. Cinderella lives with her father, Step-mother and 2 step-sisters. Cinderella was always treated unfairly by her family. Her mother and sister made her do all the chores around the home and sleep on straw in the attic of the home. Even though she was always treated unfair, she never reacted with hatred and anger. I would rate this book a [...]

    9. Originally published in 1978, this Galdone classic is being re-released along with others by Houghton Mifflin to the delight of children. His re-tellings and illustrations hold up marvelously.Cinderella is beautiful, patient, and kind, without a mean or vengeful bone in her body, as evidenced by her treatment of her step-sisters in the end of the story. I will say this is the first version I remember reading where Cinderella goes to two balls, two nights in a row, and the second is where she sta [...]

    10. As I was reading this story, my mind would always go back to the movie and compare the many differences that there exists between the text and the movie. One of the biggest differences that I found, besides the fact that there are no talking animals is the fact that in this text, Cinderella's father is alive yet they do not show him in the story. The illustrations in this text are not the prettiest in my opinion I would recommend this book to 1st -3rd grade as a great way to teach compare and co [...]

    11. This book follows the traditional original story line. In this version, the father does nothing to protect his daughter who is bullied immediately after the wedding by her new stepfamily.The illustrations are pen and ink and watercolor wash, quite detailed but they could use more expression. The stepmother and her daughters, unfortunately, are featured as fat with pig like noses.

    12. This book was very interesting to read. I have read the other Cinderella books but never this one. I liked how in detail this book was. I enjoyed this book much more than the other versions that have been modified over the years. I liked reading the whole story rather than only getting bits and pieces. The pictures were also very neat to look at.

    13. Zenobia loves the dresses Cinderella wears (the author manages 2 balls for her and then a dress when the slipper fits) but neither James nor Zenobia found the story riveting. Nor did I - it was dull reading it aloud. Not my favourite version of this old fairy tale.

    14. This book was just like every other cinderella varient, except at the end cinderella let her sisters live with her because they loved each other. I would use this for third grade level as a read free time read.

    15. I would have just given this a 2.5 if that were possible. For the most part it follows the well known Charles Perrault version of the tale. Yet there are some lines that add a little something more to the story and the art style is enjoyable.
