She doesn’t have a glass slipper. She doesn’t have a fairy godmother. Instead, she is a slave in Egypt, feeling left out because she looks different. This is the Egyptian Cinderella, who befriends the animals of the Nile. In this tale, Cinderella is actually Rhodopis, the factual queen of Pharaoh Amasis.

The book has full color pictures on every page, with several paragraphs of dialogue or narrative on the two page spread. The fictional story is based on a factual person in Egyptian history, and the storyline is adapted from an old Roman tale recorded by Strabo in the first century B.C.
