    Fair warning This review may have an unpopular opinion.This is a lovely illustrated classic from my childhood Back then I remember being obsessed with the pictures and the colors The author did an amazing job capturing all of the intricate details on the clothes and backgrounds to help illustrate the story.This edition sort of reminded me of the movie Ever After There are many differences but some similarities as well Cinderella s father has died after marrying a new wife with two daughters Fair warning This review may have an unpopular opinion.This is a lovely illustrated classic from my childhood Back then I remember being obsessed with the pictures and the colors The author did an amazing job capturing all of the intricate details on the clothes and backgrounds to help illustrate the story.This edition sort of reminded me of the movie Ever After There are many differences but some similarities as well Cinderella s father has died after marrying a new wife with two daughters Cinderella then becomes a servant and is treated poorly She meets the prince earlier in the story when she helps a bird that is injured When it comes time for a ball, she wants to go but of course her family will not let her go The bird from earlier shows up and happens to be a fairy godmother and because of Cinderella s kindness, by helping the godmother when she was a wounded bird, she helps Cinderella go.I am not going to explain anyof the story but say that the main moral I got from it was Literally This seems to be a theme with Cinderella stories Because of Cinderella s kindness she was rewarded by the fairy godmother While this is a lovely idea it is not always true Cinderella is kind throughout the story and never once is rude or impolite And there is something to be said for that Sometimes it is better to not say anything when others lash out at us and just show them kindness On the other side, she may have gone to the ball but she never really stood up for herself But here is an unpopular idea Did she really need to In this story I mean not in a real life situation In this day an age many may look at this story and think She never stood up for herself While this is true, sometimes it is BETTER not to Am I saying it s ok to be abused NO am I saying that it is ok to be treated like crap NO In those situations in real life, yes a person should stand up for themselves What I AM saying is sometimes like in this fairytale , our character and how we react to a situation isimportant then showing someone how wrong they are or how they wronged us Sometimes our character and good attitude is all it takes Cinderella handled the jealousy and rudeness of her stepsisters with grace Grace people At the end she even went as far as to forgive them Sometimes it s not about getting even but about letting go of our offences And that is what she did She forgave those that hurt her and never treated her like family That in my opinion, that is amazing And beautiful.Again, in real life, if someone is being treated like she was in this story, somethinglegal should be done, like calling the police But as a fairy tale, the moral of grace and forgiveness, of love and kindness is still a really powerful message Yes it has pretty dresses and pictures, yes it may look a bit shallow on the surface but underneath all that is somethingOne that I learned while rereading this as an adult Maybe the next time I feel like I was treated unfairly I will take a look at myself and what I can do to make the best of a difficult situation How I can use my attitude and character and forgive those that have wronged me, instead of pointing the finger Giving grace to those that have wronged me can not only set them free, but myself as well After all bitterness is like drinking poison and waiting for the other person to die No thanks I ll stick to drinking cream soda it tastes so much better

    With thousands of known variants worldwide, Cinderella is the quintessential fairy tale, and needs little introduction This lavishly illustrated version, with paintings that are consciously modeled on the aesthetic motifs of seventeenth and eighteenth century France, serves as a showcase for the talent of the marvelous Kinuko Craft Beautiful full page plates are paired with text that is embellished with decorative borders and ornamental initial letters The painting in which Cinderella is pour With thousands of known variants worldwide, Cinderella is the quintessential fairy tale, and needs little introduction This lavishly illustrated version, with paintings that are consciously modeled on the aesthetic motifs of seventeenth and eighteenth century France, serves as a showcase for the talent of the marvelous Kinuko Craft Beautiful full page plates are paired with text that is embellished with decorative borders and ornamental initial letters The painting in which Cinderella is pouring water, as well as the two page spread in which the fairy godmother is transforming mice into horses, are particularly fine, with very sharp and expressive faces I was disappointed to note however, that some of the other illustrations, though beautiful as a whole, lack a real sense of definition when it comes to the faces they appear almost blurry This is unfortunate, as it is such a joy to pore over Kinuko Craft s paintings, which are usually pleasing in both their totality and their detailsThe text of this retelling is largely taken from the version found in Andrew Lang s The Blue Fairy Book , although the language has been significantly modernized The element of the injured bluebird, which turns out to be the fairy godmother, is taken from the variant found in the Brothers Grimm Aschenputtel All this information is helpfully supplied on the title page, although no indication is given as to who actually wrote the text, and is therefore responsible for the adaptation and synthesizing of these two variants Craft herself, perhaps
