Cinderella is a classic story that has been and will be loved throughout the generations, similar to Breaking Bad. This is a great version, the language clear and simple, the pictures beautiful.

It all begins with a description of Cinderella's home life. She has two awful and ugly sisters who treat her horribly because they are jealous of her lovely nature and good looks. Which sounds just like my home life, actually, except I have three ugly sisters, not two. They make Cinderella do all the clea

i read this book when i was really young. As young as i could remember, i loved this book because it sort of applies into my life as well and hoping for a happy ending in the future. And after all these years i'm still loving it and left home, found my prince charming and lived happily ever after.

This book can be awarded the medal for making me feel totally and utterly ugly as child. I rather unrealistically took the pictures of the beautiful Cinderella in her increasingly gorgeous costumes as the benchmark of what a girl should aspire to look like. Even the picture of her in rags is unfeasibly breath-taking. I can remember every image vividly even though I haven't seen the book for over thirty years. It still makes me feel horribly inadequate.
It is one of my childhood stories that I have stayed etched on my memory and heart. I just feel so connected to Cinderalla in that strange way. What makes me even more happy is the numerous enjoyable films that keep coming because of this enduring story.

I had this story read to me as a child and read all the Ladybird books to my children when they were young and am now sharing them with the children in schools.
