Woven together from the threads of seventeen Cinderella tales from around the world and complemented by Paschkis’ gorgeous illustrations inspired by the distinctive folkart traditions of each of those countries, this magical retelling of the Cinderella tale will enrapture children young and old.

Kirkus called it a "gem of a book," (10/2007) and Publisher's Weekly deemed it "handsome" and "inspired." (9/07) Horn Book raved: "In words and art, a graphic and inspiring demonstration of humanity's common themes, as well as its rich diversity." (Jan/Feb 2008)

CIP: The author draws from a variety of folk traditions to put together this version of Cinderella, including elements from Mexico, Iran, Korea, Russie, Appalachia and more.
