Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 1-4-This addition to the publisher's collection of "Cinderella" stories from many cultures adheres closely to the European version, except for the Indian glosses: silver ankle bangles, a godfather snake, a dance at the Navaratri Festival, and the wedding-ceremony details. The tale is adapted from the East Indian story "Nagami," which is believed to be "-at least 1,000 years old and has been preserved in oral traditions," but no other sources are given. The emotional text is full of descriptive adjectives and bathed in cultural details. Tang's watercolors depict the action in bright colorful swirls, heavy black accents, and backgrounds of flower splashes. An additional purchase for those libraries that collect "Cinderella" variants, literary or otherwise.-Susan Hepler, Burgundy Farm Country Day School, Alexandria, VA Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
