This story somewhat reminds me of Cinderella, except there is no stepmother to torture the poor girl. Instead, the girl in this story is treated like a slave by her own sisters, who seem to think that they are far more beautiful and superior that their own sister. Cinderella's stepsisters have nothing on these two. They are far more conceited, foolish, and pitiful. I will never understand how they think they can both marry the Invisible Being, or why their father never step in to help the poor child, but as it ends, none of that matters. The rough face girl still gets her fairy tale ending, and readers learn an important lesson --- don't make silly guesses about an invisible being- his sister is scary!
