This was a fun story with fantastic, bright pictures. I like that Blanche, the Cinderella character, was rewarded for her patience and ability to not laugh at others -- traits all kids can use. Once again, however, I found the ending to be a bit disappointing. Blanche seemingly vanished and there was a happily ever after tag at the end. I would probably have young students rewrite this ending, explaining in more detail what happened to Blanche or her sister and mother, if they preferred. Also, I might have them brainstorm some more silly animals at Aunty's house, like the two-headed cow and colored chickens, or some more strange behaviors for Aunty, like taking off her head to brush her hair and the bone to make stew.
