Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's 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.

Children's Literature
Boada has provided us with a bilingual volume of a classic fairy tale. Cinderella has always been a popular tale with children, as well as with parents and teachers. The inclusion of Spanish text with the classic story is an excellent opportunity to provide a familiar story for children learning either Spanish or English. The story itself is a simple retelling of the classic tale, with interesting descriptions that bring the story to life. The bright and colorful illustrations help carry the story and provide comic relief as well as insight into the characters. Included is a list of other bilingual fairy tales. 2001, Chronicle Books, $12.95 and $6.95. Ages 9 to 15. Reviewer: Danielle Williams
