Cinderella is a book written by the Walt Disney Company about a young lady repressed by her stepmother and stepsisters. Throughout the story, her stepmother kept her from having a life similar to the other girls her age.

Cinderella, the main character, is made to do not only her own work, but the work of her stepsisters, Anastasia and Drizilla. Their mother favors the two sisters over her stepdaughter and gives them all they desire. The fairy godmother is a sweet looking older lady who comes to

First of all, do you have any idea how many people have the same size foot? Billions. Trying to find your true love based on her foot size is just preposterous. Although, as a kid, I thought his was a great idea! This fairy tale gives new light to fairy tales. It allows young girls to see that no matter where you come from or how bad life is, there is always a bright light waiting for you ahead. This book not only gives the readers something to look forward to because they want Cinderella to hav ...more

Cinderella, written by the Walt Disney Company, is intended for the primary audience. It is a written folklore that has been interpreted by several different groups of people. It has been basically kept the same about a young girl who's father had married a wicked woman who had stolen all of her father's money after he has passed away. The stepmother and stepsisters do everything to keep her busy and treat her like a maid. Cinderella ends up going to the ball with the prince and becomes the prin ...more

I like this classic story of Cinderella. Poor Cinderella has to do all of the chores and watches her step sisters get to everything that she would like to do, such as going to the ball to meet the Prince. Cinderella has to finish all of her chores before she can attend and by the time she gets them finished she has no time to fix her dress to wear. That all changes when her fairy godmother comes and turns her ragged dress into a beautiful gown and her animal friends into horses and a carriage to ...more

Setting, Characters, and Plot: Walt Disney’s version of Cinderella is what most people believe to be the original version of this fairytale. The story’s setting is a far away European Kingdom. There lived Ella (Cinderella), a beautiful, golden-haired, blue-eyed girl who lived with her devoted father who gave her everything her heart desired. Her father was wife-less and felt that Ella needed a mother. So, he married again and chose a wife who had two daughters, Anastasia and Drizella. The father ...more

This version of Cinderella by Walt Disney's Company is Cinderella in one of its simplest forms. Cinderella is forced to care for her stepsisters and step mother following the death of her parents. The Prince of the kingdom invites all the maidens of the kingdom to his ball, where he will choose a wife. Unfortunately they do not let Cinderella join them, and they destroy her dress.

I chose to read Cinderella because it was a favorite of mine as a kid. It was so interesting to go back and read a classic like this now as an adult. I still think this is a great story for children. It is quite obviously a fairy tale fiction, but it is a great read. It is magical, with the animals and fairy god mother. It is also hopeful, and teaches a lesson that if you don't give up, a bad situation can turn itself around and have a happy ending. I enjoyed reading it again. I think it's nice ...more

This is the timeless story that should be in every teacher's classroom for students to enjoy. It is the story of a girl who has no one in her life except some animals and is poor, forced to do chores all day. She never stops believing in herself though and she continues to wish for a better life. Finally, her dream is granted and she gets to go to the Prince's ball where she falls in love and is eventually married. This story sparks imagination in children's minds and brings them to different wo ...more

While her family is dressed richly, Cinderella is dressed very poorly. On the night of a ball, Cinderella is told to stay home while her step-mom and step-sisters attend.

Cinderella is the much-loved only child of a widowed aristocrat.

She too has been married before, and has two daughters from her first marriage, Anastasia and Drizella.

Cinderella is a fairytale. It can be used in the classroom as it teaches about morally right and wrong behaviour. And those who do wrong will eventually get their comeuppance.

The book is about a young girl called Cinderella who lives with her Father, Stepmother and her ugly step sisters. She is made to do all the household chores, whilst her ugly step sisters do nothing to help.
An invitation to the Princes grand party arrives for all the young ladies in the land, as he is looking for a wife. Th

This book is about a beautiful girl who lived with her evil stepmother and wicked stepsisters, after her father’s death. She was treated poorly and mentally abused. She did everyone’s chores. There was a grand boll and she wanted to go. But for this to happen she had

Cinderella to me is a lot like Snow White. However, Cinderella is more classy and girly than Snow White is. For starters, Cinderella starts out with an evil step mother and she has two evil step sisters. Cinderella has to cook and clean and never gets to do anything fun. Eventually her fairy god mother shows up and Cinderella is granted with a beautiful dress, a carriage, and she gets to go to the ball but she has to be back before midnight. A lot of movies have come out with a spin or relation ...more

The tale of Cinderella is every girls dream. This book has a great story that anyone would enjoy reading. The story is about a girl whose father died and had to live with her evil stepmother who made her do chores. Her two step sisters were mean as well and make Ella (Cinderella) do all the work. She makes many animal friends and they help her do the work. A fairy godmother comes and grants her wishes she is able to go to the ball but she has to be back before midnight.

I chose this traditional tale book because it is my favorite princess book of all time. Even though it might be a kid’s book, I will not be ashamed of reading this book. This traditional tale always interests me because even though Cinderella was treated badly and unfairly by her evil step-mother and sisters, she seemed to overcome all of that and stay positive. I will never get tired of reading the books or the movies.

This is the version of Cinderella I most remember from my childhood, as I owned both the Walt Disney version of the book and movie. The illustrations in this version match those presented in the Disney movie. There are pictures depicting various scenes on almost every page, but the text is higher level and in chapter format, making it longer and more complex. The authors of this version added much detail and plot to the original versions. The characters are more developed and I had forgotten abo ...more

I absolutely love Cinderella; she will forever be my favorite princess. I could easily read this book over and over again and not get tired of the story. The plot line puts you in a situation where you can understand Cinderella’s difficult life and how she gets through it because of how strong her character is. I would definitely recommend reading this book or even showing the movie to your daughters or younger girls. I know when I was a younger girl, picking a favorite princess was a big deal, ...more

This version of Cinderella was like the one I am used to hearing. The young lady has basically evil/mean step sisters who make her do everything. Her new stepmother isn't the nicest either. Then there is a ball. Her fairy godmother helps her prepare but she must be home by midnight. She loses her glass slipper and this leads the prince to figure out whos slipper it is because he fell in love with this girl
