    A reviewer

    Marcia Brown does not stray far from the classic story of the abused stepdaughter, the evil stepmother and stepsisters, the loving fairy godmother, and the handsome prince. This version is especially good for reading aloud.

    Marcia Brown was a high school teacher for three years in New York. She had wanted to be a doctor but coming from a family financially unable to send her to medical school she instead became a teacher. After three years of teaching she quit to pursue her dream of writing and illustrating children¿s books. She became the first person ever to have won the Caldecott three times. One of these medals was for her translation of Cinderella in 1954. She won the 1955 Caldecott for her translation and illustration of this book. This book is considered traditional literature. The first page gives it away it has the traditional first line ¿Once upon a time¿. It goes without saying that this is a wonderful book. After all it is a classic. This is the story of how a hard working and mistreated young girl meets her Fairy God Mother. Her Fairy God Mother helps her to realize her dreams. Will everything work out the way it is suppose to? Only reading will tell. Brown, Marcia. Cinderella. New York: Scribner Press, 1954. Reading Level 5.1

    Forget Shakespeare, Chaucer, and Milton

    Cinderella offers a compelling insight into the belief systems that, I can proudly say, are now being put to the test in modern academia: one of the Midwest¿s finest universities in Milwaukee, Marquette University. Although supposedly written for children, this book was obviously intended for a more mature audience that could read more deeply into the texts to derive it's full meaning. If your children possess this book, I urge you to spare them the hardship of reading it now, and save it for 15 years later, when they are capable of understanding the complex nature of this literary masterpiece. I guess the only word I can use to describe this book, as I sit here staring at it in the Marquette University library, is 'wow'. Thank you, and I hope I have inspired others to drop their 'Shakespeare' and 'Homer' books, and read a real challenging literary masterpiece like Cinderella, as has been demanded by my school for our Freshman English curriculum.
