Hilary Knight's version of Cinderella adds some twists to the original fairytale story, but it also makes it interesting for readers who know the originally story of Cinderella. In this story, the plot was still the same as the original fairytale, however, the appearance of the main character, Cinderella, appeared different than the original Cinderella. The illustrations are very vivid and detailed, and really show the true emotions and feelings of each character, as well the various settings. I enjoyed the different ending Hilary Knight decided to add that Cinderella forgave her stepmother and sisters, and then asked them to live with her at the palace, with the fairy godmother always watching over them. I enjoyed the different aspects of this story, and think this will keep readers hooked on what other differences will appear next, which can be a fun discussion for students. This book is an essential example when talking with students about what aspects and characteristics if a story allow it to be labeled as a fairy tale. I think this book is one that can be read to younger students, and individually read by upper elementary-level students. In conclusion, believing in yourself, staying true to yourself, following your heart, and giving second changes are some aspects that children can take away from this story.… (more)
