Cinderella lives with her cruel stepmother and stepsisters who force her to work as a servant doing menial housework. When the king's eligible son sends out invitations for a two-evening ball, Cinderella longs to go. She has nothing to wear but rags, until help arrives from an unexpected guest. With a little courage and a lot of magic, Cinderella may yet make it to the ball.

When [Cinderella] had done her work, the girl was in the habit of going into the chimney corner and sitting among the cind

So beautifuly creepy *-*

Cinderela é desde que me lembro um dos meus contos de fadas favoritos e há muito que queria ler a obra original. Mas esta foi uma leitura ainda mais especial devido a esta edição que é só a coisa mais bonita de sempre!
Está cheia de ilustrações estranhas e lindas que pretendo mostrar em breve em vídeo, provavelmente no vídeo de leituras do mês de Outubro :D

I thought it was time for a slight change and so here we are. I will admit that the Everyman's Children's literary library has been a draw for me for some time every since I was given one of their titles years ago.

The thing about the series is that not only do they print beautiful books they also reproduce some of the most amazing artwork and present it in one of the seminal editions.

So when I had the chance to get a copy of Cinderella I thought why not. Now I will not give away the story even

O que posso eu dizer deste menino??
Eu adoro a Disney e se tivesse que escolher um favorito há um ano, iria ser uma escolha muito muito difícil, no entanto, este ano, apercebi-me que não seria assim tão difícil.... Apercebi-me que o filme da Disney, série, livro que mais vezes tinha visto e lido, era mesmo a Cinderella.
Vi adaptações em manga, vi o filme da Disney, li recentemente o livro de Julia Quinn em que vai buscar resquícios dessa mesma história para contar outra de forma fantástica e pense

I would give this one 3.5 stars. I didn't like it as much as Camilla Rose Garcia's illustrated works in Snow White. The artwork was still stunning but some of it didn't blow me away in the same way it did with her other works. This is Charles Perrault's version of Cinderella. I think this book would've worked so much better with the Grimm version of the fairytale for Camilla's style of artwork. I would have loved to have seen what Camilla would have done with something much darker.

Overall, this

" Remember, If you stay one instant after the last stroke of midnight, your carriage will become a pumpkin.. While you yourself will appear as humble as you did before".

Cinderella , a child unnoticed and unvalued by peers and parent-figures, discharges the household chores and is subjected to humiliating treatment of the hands of her stepmother and stepsisters, she is presented as a young woman, willing to humble herself before her domineering stepsisters.It is she who has to wash the dishes, sc

كل البنات نفسهم يبقوا سندريلا، بس في آخر كام صفحة بس. :DD
محدش طبعًا نفسه يتبهدل البهدلة اللي هي مرّت بيها طول عشر سنين تقريبًا.

أكيد قريتها وأنا صغيرة، بس قريتها تاني وأنا كبيرة كده.

أد إيه الكاتب كان مركز أوي على وصف سندريلا بكل الصفات النبيلة !!
طيبة، وصبورة، وحنينة، وبتعمل خير، ومتحملة الإساءة، وقابلتها بالمعروف.
لأ وكمان جابت لولاد مرات باباها عرسان في آخر القصة..!!!! :D

I love this editions with all my heart. The art is beautifully creepy, almost Tim Burton-sequel but more feminine I would say.

I read this classic fairy tales in the Classics of Children’s Literature (6th Edition) by John W. Griffith and Charles H. Frey. Published by Pearson in Upper Saddle River, NJ in 2005.

Cinderella’s mother is not given much thought but her father takes a second wife and soon Cinderella falls victim to the nasty behavior of a stepmother and two stepsisters. They take her belongings and leave her with nothing but the cinders near the chimney. The King holds a ball and while she is forbidden to go, Ci

Note: I read this in the Harper Design edition illustrated by Camille Rose Garcia

I had a really hard time deciding what to rate this. Because the story itself was probably worth a 1.5 or 2 stars because I didn't like it that much but the illustrations are definately worth 5 stars. So we'll go for 3 stars. This was not my favourite Cinderella story, I prefere the version by the brothers Grimm much more. It's a lot more darker and in my opinion, also more complex and interesting than this story.

أنك يكون عندك 19 وتبدأ تقرا قصص المكتبة الخضرا للأطفال دى حاجة تافهة ومجنونة في نفس ذات الوقت :D
لكن بصراحة مقدرتش أقاوم فضولي وأكبح رغبتي في أني أقراهم , خصوصاً أنى مقرأتهمش في طفولتي :3
فقررت اقراهم وهقرأ ميكي كمان ^_^
بالنسبة لسندريلا بقى , فكُل بنت نفسها تكون سندريلا وتقابل الأمير لكن ناسيين أن سندريلا عشان توصل للأمير وتكون ملكة صبرت سنين طويلة على عذاب وأضطهاد من عيلتها
كُل حاجة في حياتنا عشان نوصلها محتاجة صبر :)

Li este livro para o projeto do DisneyInUs, que consiste em ver um filme da Disney por mês e ler o conto/livro que lhe deu origem. Os filmes são escolhidos à sorte e no mês de Maio calhou ver o Cinderela. O conto que deu origem a esse filme foi o Cinderela de Charles Perrault.
Para saberem o que achei do livro e do filme podem dar uma espreitadela ao vídeo que fiz a falar de ambos e a tecer algumas comparações entre os dois: https://youtu.be/9UPzKMKnDJQ

I purchased this book hoping to enjoy it as much as I did Snow White and Alice in Wonderland illustrated by Camille Rose Garcia. Unfortunately I did not. I found the illustrations in this book to be a little off putting and not really matching the story.

If you are looking illustrated versions of classic, I would highly recommend choosing Snow White or Alice in Wonderland instead of this one.

In Charles Perralult’s version of Cinderella, the author tells an Italian version of this classic. The pictures, however, are set in 1920s London. The story-line is very similar to the American version. Cinderella has to move in with her father’s new wife and daughters who treat her as a servant. Cinderella does not tell her father how they treat her because she thinks that he would believe his new wife over her. When the King’s son gave a ball both of the stepsisters made Cinderella help them ...more

Roberto Innocenti, ospite d'onore della trentesima edizione di le immagini della fantasia*, illustra la classica fiaba di Charles Perrault come fosse ambientata nei Roaring Twenties di F. Scott Fitzgerald.

Magistrale la regia delle tavole: valga come esempio la scena in cui le sorellastre salgono sull'auto che le porterà alla festa, scena inquadrata (letteralmente) dalla finestra della soffita in cui Cenerentola è relegata.

This is just another translation from the classic. The sweet Cinderella is mistreated by her mean step-mother and step-sisters, until the day when she has the opportunity to meet the prince with the help of her Godmother. She marries the prince, after he fell head over heels for her at a ball organized by his father, the king. Cinderella forgives her step-sisters and helps them marry two noble men.

The illustrations are colorful, and look like a painting.

ORIGINALLY POSTED: http://bibliomantics.com/2015/12/31/m...

Illustrated by the super talented Rose Camille Garcia, the French version of Cinderella (Cendrillon) is not nearly as dark as the Brothers Grimm tale (Aschenputtel). While I would have loved to see how Garcia illustrated the fate of the stepsisters in the Grimm tale, she once again superbly brought a classic fairy tale to light in a modern way. Do The Little Mermaid next please!

The story about Cinderella I knew before I started this book but it was not because of the story I read it. I read this book because of the illustrations! These both wonderful and creepy illustrations by Camille Rose Garcia - they are both scary and pretty at the same time and I love them for it!
