Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jan Lieberman
In 1955, Eleanor Farjeon extended Cinderella into a full-length novel. The wimpy father is a man unable to take action but loves his beautiful daughter. The stepmother is appropriately nasty as are her vapid daughters. Ella is sweet, talented and willing to make the best of an intolerable situation. At the Ball, the meeting between the Prince and the Princess of Nowhere, aka Ella, is filled with sweet awkwardness as they get acquainted. The characters are fleshed out and the story becomes fresh and original. Farjeon's use of language is choice! 1995 (orig.

    I Remember It Fondly

    I was a little girl of about 10 when I picked up that book in our church library. Had I known how hard it would be to get a copy as a middle-aged adult who simply wishes to take a trip back to her childhood, I would have asked to buy the thing back then! I will always remember the full characters, the avid description of the mundane, thus making the mundane interesting -- Farjeon's turn of phrase and caught-off-guard mini-twists delighted me to no end. I wish I could find a copy of this book without spending a fortune!
