Cinderella, or The Little Glass Slipper

We rated this book:


Over three-hundred-eighteen years ago, Charles Perrault wrote Cinderella. Now we have an unsanitized, un-Disneyized lovely and gothic version of the tale. The illustrations are by the incredible artist Camille Rose Garcia, whose arresting images put a new slant on this very old story. Her previous take on Snow White was enchanting, and she has also illustrated Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Collect them all and give them as gifts; they are certain to charm and enchant the reader. Of notable delight in Cinderella are the transformations of the six mice into horses, the rat into a coachman, and the six lizards into footmen. The colors are vivid and exciting. The typography design emphasizes the fairy tale magic of “gold and silver” and the cruel remarks by the wicked stepsisters. Cinderella’s imagined garb is not a ball gown, but a sleek formal. Her rags are remind me of Raquel Welch’s famous image in One Million Years B.C.. You’ll want to look at this book often and reimagine this delightful fairy tale. It is wonderful that Garcia can make an old story so contemporary.
