    One thought on “Cinderella”

    1. Въпреки леко осемдесеттарските прически на мъжете, илюстрациите са красиви - пищни, подробни, барокови. Може би на ръба на кича, но ако бях на седем пак нямаше да мога да откъсна очи от тях.

    2. The art here is fairly more fanciful and fantastical, and it has a more 'fake' historical imagery than in Andreas' rendtion, but it's so well done and more beautiful and magical. And the text isn't out of place either! Might be my favourite rendition of Cinderella for the time being, awaiting to see Kinuko Y. Craft's version, which the sample suggests is mind-blowing where art is concerned.

    3. Ruth Sanderson blends elements from both Perrault's and the brother's Grimm version of this old story, creating a unique retelling that will appeal to younger children (grades K-3). For example, the glass slipper is a Perrault feature as is the presence of Cinderella's father, who is not dead, but detached. Presumably not wanting to interfere in the affairs of women, he allows his second wife and step-daughters to mistreat Cinderella. The fairy godmother is simply a fairy, adding the necessary m [...]

    4. A fairly traditional re-telling of the classic tale, with small details that vary from many versions. In one instance, Cinderella's father, ashamed of how she's treated by his new family, asks if he can bring her anything from town and she requests "The first twig that brushes against your hat on the way home." He brings her a hazel twig, and she plants it next to her mother's rosebushes. Her tears make the twig grow into a tree that houses a white bird whom Cinderella feeds daily. Later, the bi [...]

    5. This retelling of the tale of Cinderella stays true to many of the traditional details found in this well-known story. The beautiful Cinderella finds herself at the mercy of her cruel stepmother following the death of her mother. Because Cinderella’s father is too afraid to stand up to his new wife, Cinderella is treated as a servant and denied the opportunity to attend the King’s grand ball. But with the help of her fairy godmother, Cinderella goes to the grand ball and falls in love with t [...]

    6. This tale of Cinderella is told beautifully with author and illustrator, Ruth Sanderson’s velvety rich illustrations of beautiful gowns, magical trees, stately castles and enchanting birds. The story is traditional, although a few additions create for a richer storyline. When Cinderella’s father returns from town, with pearl necklaces and a satin gown for her stepsisters, she receives her special request as well, “The first twig, Father, that brushes against your hat on the way home.” As [...]

    7. Not a Disney version, we see Cinderella tending to a magical hazel tree that contains birds to help her with her chores. Rats and Lizards are added to the carriage staff. Although Cinderella can forgive her sisters, they do get what they deserve.This story is a perfect blend of the two dominated versions that date back from the 1800's. You see snippets from the Brother's Grimm such as the hazel tree, as well as, *Aunt Louisa's Fairy Tale Legends, a happier version with forgiveness. The beautiful [...]

    8. The illustrations in this book are beyond gorgeous. I enjoy the way Sanderson crafts her tale, making elegant, but still understandable for children to read. She incorporates some elements of the Cinderella fable that I have never heard of before, such as the hazel twig and the white bird. In this retelling, Cinderella’s father is still alive, just a very weak-willed man who lets Cinderella’s stepmother lord over him. Overall, this book was just wonderful. I think there is so much beauty in [...]

    9. The illustrations in this version, my favorite of today's three, are absolutely stunning. Sanderson seems to have chosen a time period around the 1770s-1780s for this, and she obviously did her research as the costuming and the decor are pretty much historically accurate. The version of the story entwines some facets from Grimm and Perrault, keeping the white bird and the tree from Aschenputtel and the somewhat vengeful birds (they force the step-mother and step-sisters to stay forever inside th [...]

    10. I love Ruth Sanderson's lush illustrations! Beautiful colored pictures fill every page, easy to see for a classroom read-aloud. (There are however many words on each page; this is the full story not a truncated simplistic preschool version.) While I'm not a fan of the front cover (Cinderella's eyes are too heavy-lidded for me), I do LOVE nearly every magical picture. I also love the imaginative detail of what to do with those wicked stepsisters. Some books have them reform; some have them die; t [...]

    11. So we had to do story time for adults in one of my classes and I chose this one. It seemed to go over really well and my class even laughed and snickered at appropriate times. I enjoy the different aspects to the traditional tale of this one and being a fairytale lover, I pretty much will always enjoy this.

    12. I am embarassed to admit that I think I've really only read the Disney version of this story (aside from the modern spins) so I enjoyed this. (Well, at least I think this is a retelling of an older version - but I am no expert.) The illustrations were dreamy and appropriate and I loved the quirky bits about having to pick lentils out of the ashes and the birds pecking the sisters/step mother at the end. Bea enjoyed this too and saw through all the cliches and lessons and enjoyed the story.

    13. I have always enjoyed the story of Cinderella. This edition of the book was a little different than the traditional in the fact that her father is more involved. I liked the way this was portrayed but at the same time it almost made you realize more how badly she was treated and yet her father did not do anything. I think this book is definitely a book that all children should read, especially the girls simply because it is a fun read.

    14. This wasn't the exact edition I read but seems the closest. I loved Ruth Sanderson's artwork. 'Cinderella' was my favourite story when I was a child and still holds special memories so I decided to revisit my childhood.

    15. This folk tale is a story that has been passed down for many years. It does a great job with the two negative step sisters being a stepping stool for Cinderella to overcomes hardships and find out what true self love is.

    16. A lovely illustrated picture book version. The retelling combined elements from Perrault's and the Grimms'.

    17. A beautiful retelling of the classic tale! the illustrations are incredibly detailed and breathtaking, complementing the text to tell the story perfectly.

    18. I really enjoyed reading the version of the classic Cinderella tale. The illustrations are simply beautiful.

    19. This is a picture book in which the story is retold and illustrated by Ruth Sanderson. This classic story blends two different versions: Brothers Grimm and Charles Perrault. Cinderella’s father marries a woman who has two daughters. The cruel stepmother and step sisters treat Cinderella like a servant, but the father doesn’t stand up for her daughter. The family is invited to a royal ball. Cinderella wants to go, but the stepmother doesn’t allow her to attend the ball. Cinderella is devast [...]

    20. As usual, the illustrations are breathtaking and I can easily get lost in them! The details are astounding and I love to look at each picture, taking my time, and hopefully seeing everything that is there! But, I can go back and see things I didn't see before! That is how good Ms. Sanderson is!The story is the familiar tale except for two items. The Father has not died and Cinderella has a beautiful hazel tree and a white bird that help lessen her sorrows.Also, the ending to the stepsisters and [...]

    21. It's Cinderella, not much of a deviation from the traditional fairy tale. Cinderella isn't my favorite fairy tale, but this was still a good story. Although in this version the father is alive. (I've read and seen both ways, where the father is dead and gone, or alive and well but totally spineless.) The pictures are nice to look at and it is a nice fairy tale. Recommended? SureBuy/Borrow? depends I don't think it'll break the bank but I don't think it's something you'll be dying to get onto you [...]

    22. I've read many retellings of Cinderella over the years, but this one really stands out. Both the beautiful story and exquisite art are more spectacular than any other I've encountered.

    23. This is most definitely one of the more interesting variations of Cinderella that I have ever read. For the wary reader the information about the story being from Perrault and with an elemental dash of Grimm is truly a warning for what you are about to read for although the story tends to veer away from all the gore and violence of the original it still continues to combine different elements from many different variations to make the story still one-of-its-own-kind. The reading is a bit on the [...]

    24. Cinderella is based off of the classic tale with which most people have grown have up. It starts of featuring a young girl, who is treated as a servant by her step-mother and step-sisters. Cinderella is not invited to the ball, and is left at home to do the chores. However, a fairy god-mother appeared to give her the necessary materials to go to the ball, as long as she is home by midnight. When she goes to the ball, she is the most beautiful one there, and the prince falls in love. However, whe [...]

    25. This book tells the classic story of Cinderella. Her father remarries, so she obtains and evil stepmother and two evil stepsisters who force her to do work around the house. There is a huge ball in town to help find the wife for the prince, and Cinderella wants to go, but her stepmother won't allow it. Then, Cinderella meets her fairy godmother, who gets her ready for the ball. But, Cinderella has to rush out by midnight before the magic wears off. She loses her glass slipper, so the prince goes [...]

    26. This take on Cinderella still feels traditional, even though it occasionally tosses in some different twists and turns.Cinderella's father is more of a character in this version, and while one may assume this to be a positive, it actually serves to be a bit of a negative. Instead of being endeared to Cinderella's father, you instead wonder how he can watch his daughter get abused by her (not ugly in this version) stepsisters.The story adheres to the framework of the original story, though it doe [...]

    27. Note: I read an anonymous version online through .This classic tale features Cinderella, her godmother, the prince, and her sisters. It is a story that kids enjoy, but now as an adult I see how some people could bring up gender issues with this. The fact that Cinderella has to look pretty to go to the ball is something people could have issue with. Are we sending the wrong message to kids? I don't know how many children read into it like that, but I am sure it could be argued that we are sending [...]

    28. I loved this version of Cinderella simply for the images. It was the cover that first caught my attention with the beautiful colors, and how the young woman on the cover looked so serene. As I read the retold version I loved that it explained at first how Cinderella was called Cinder-wench, which is not usually mentioned. The story line was well written and I enjoyed how at the end of the story it gave a moral for us to remember, but honestly it really was the images and colors that I fell in lo [...]

    29. When her father gets remarried, Cinderella becomes a slave. Her father gives her a hazel twig, which her tears turn into a tree. A ball is going to be held and Cinderella asks to go. Her stepmother throws a bowl of lentils into the fireplace and tells her to clean every last one before she can go. Cinderella asks the birds to help her. The Stepmother won't let her go. Her fairy godmother comes and changes a pumpkin and mice into a carriage and horses. Cinderella gets a beautiful gown and goes to [...]

    30. This is a classic version of Cinderella. I really liked how they described the feelings Cinderella went through when grieving her mother's death. It talks about her planting a particular tree because her mother would have liked it. It describes how Cinderella's life changes because of her mothers death and how she adjusts to her new "rough" life. Although this is a traditional version of Cinderella there is unique detail put in in different parts of the plot that help make this story it's own. T [...]
