هنا سندريلا امتلكت اعرض قدم و ليس اصغر قدم..إنها ليست كاملة اذن! !؟
اذن فالفتيات العاديات يستحققن امير الاحلام ؟
اذن من تصبر ستنول؟
اذن لكل ظالم نهاية؟
سندريلا من📖 قصص التراث الشعبي الأوروبي و الاسيوى..ضاربة في القدم...عالجها عشرات الكتاب و لكن الفرنسي بيرلو يكسب للنهاية

الجمال في المرأة يتم تقديره دائما و لكن النبل و الطيبة و التسامح هم الابقى هذا هو مغزى قصتنا الخيالية..فمع بيرلو تجد ان الأناقة المؤقتة و الأحذية الزجاجية ليست هي ما جذب انتباه الأمير الا وقتيا..و لكنه في النهاية قبل سندريلا بحالته

Uno de mis cuentos preferidos, la versión de Perrault es clavadita a la peli clásica de Disney (sorprendentemente) pero la de los Grimm es totalmente diferente, y tan maravillosamente macabra y genial!!! *w*

" 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

Un hermoso cuento que no pierde vigencia.

La versión de Charles Perrault es muy dulce y más apropiado para niños, pero absolutamente me quedo con la versión de los hermanos Grimm; Tiene todo lo que reconocemos de la historia: El Hada madrina, la calabaza, los ratoncitos y la mítica zapatilla de cristal. Sí debo reconocer que bastante macabro y en ambas versiones el padre vive, lo que hace al cuento más crudo y a la vez realista.

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

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.

سـنـدريـلا.. <3 <33

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.

Las hermanastras de Cenicienta no resultaron ser tan malas como Disney me hizo creer.

Esta es una adaptación cortita y al pie del clásico de Perrault. Se nota en la misma que se ha intentado ambientarla en un tiempo más cercano, aunque sigue teniendo ese toque de clásico.
Las ilustraciones de Misstigri son bastante preciosas, aportando un detalle extra que quizás las palabras no llegan a transmitir.
De todas formas, me sigue gustando un poco más la historia primigenia, y destaco este álbum por su arte. Recomendable.

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 :)
سندريلا , أسطورتى المُفضلة <3 :)

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.

Me leí este cuento al enterarme que no era la versión de los hermanos Grimm. Y realmente me ha sorprendido y me ha gustado mucho. Una de las cosas que me sorprendió fue saber que ella vivió el rechazo de su madrastra estando su padre vivo, y otra cosa, fue que ella fue a dos bailes, y fue en el segundo en donde perdió su zapatilla de cristal. Además el hecho de que perdonará a sus hermanastras y hiciera que ella fuesen al palacio y la casará con personas de las corte. Me encantó la moraleja de e ...more

The story itself is almost the same, the pictures are hauntingly beautiful the thing is...I expected more changes. My understanding was that this is a darker version of Cinderella but I found it to be the lightest of them all (compared to the Grimm's version at least). Only the drawings are truly captivating.

Also -the thing that made me really angry is that my edition is messed up. My book, which btw arrived in perfect condition, is missing 6 pages and the story itself is in shambles.
