Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Mandy Cruz
"A long, long time ago a heart broke," there is not a better way to grip the attention of a preteen girl than to begin a story with a broken heart. The Spanish version of the Cinderella tale takes on a bit darker tone in this graphic novel. This format allows readers to hold onto their childhood favorite for just a bit longer without fear of one of their friends teasing them about it. The tale remains mostly unchanged aside from the short lived inclusion of Cenicienta's mother. The much hated evil stepmother and her vile daughters have still taken over Cenicienta's house and forced her to be their slave; the Prince is still having a royal ball; the pumpkin, mice, glass slipper—all there. The illustrations in the panels are more stimulating than traditional versions of this classic thus making Cenicienta's emotions palpable to the reader, you can see her heart sink when her evil stepmother forbids her from attending the royal ball, and her soul soar when the glass slipper fits. Pure bliss for every Cinderella fan, I hope this graphic novel is released in other languages as well so the beloved classic can be appreciated by everyone who has felt the turmoil of leaving behind their childhood favorite. Reviewer: Mandy Cruz
School Library Journal
Gr 3–6—This graphic novel, which begins by telling of a heart broken many years ago, is a retelling of the Grimms' version of the fairy tale with a few changes along the way, such as a tree that grows on Cinderella's mother's grave that plays a pivotal role. The story is concisely written, using fairly basic vocabulary. It contains somewhat dark, solemn pen sketches instead of the chameleonlike expressions from sadness to elation and then to despair found among illustrations in some of the more commercialized versions of the tale. The emotions depicted here are mostly muted and subdued. Each page has a multiframe layout with legibly printed dialogue bubbles. There is a list of characters at the beginning and biographical information about the author and illustrator, a glossary of some of the more complex words in the story, a history of the fairy tale, and discussion questions and writing points at the end. Children familiar with the story will enjoy this interesting new spin on it.—Rhonda Jeffers, Coweta Public Library System, Newnan, GA
