Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

In another contribution to Chronicle's handsomely illustrated bilingual fairytale series, Cinderella/Cenicienta, adapted by Francesc Boada, Monse Fransoy's witty framed and spot illustrations feature the humble heroine carting off her stepsisters' discarded clothes while they primp and preen, and the villainous women fainting at the sight of Cinderella modeling the glass slipper when the prince's footman comes to call.

From Booklist

Ages 3-6. The fairy godmother has spectacles and a bun. The stepsisters aren't ugly, but they are mean. Otherwise, this is very much the traditional Cinderella fairytale, translated here from a Spanish version and told as part of the Bilingual Editions series, with English text on the top half of the page and the Spanish text right below. Without being intrusive, the bilingual format makes it easy for students learning either language, especially since the story is familiar. The full-page color illustrations opposite the text add a lively comic tone as the vain, proud sisters and overdressed, bossy stepmother are brought down by the stern godmother and the heroine who progresses from rags to romance and riches. The clear mixed-media pictures have depth and energy, with lots of circular shapes--from the grand coach in pumpkin colors to the swirling couple at the ball. Then there's the final view of the stepmother and stepsisters rolling over in a faint, feet up in the air, when the glass slipper fits the ragged young outcast. Hazel Rochman
