Cendrillon: A Caribbean Cinderella by Robert D. San Souci
This variant of Cinderella incorporates West Indian culture and customs. Elements of French Creole life are highlighted in the incredibly alive illustrations. This story is told from the grandmother’s point of view and reflects a simple honesty and personal acceptance all children should learn.
A Starred Review from Booklist, states:
"Particularly vibrant, both in its melodious language and its spirited art…A vital rendition of an old favorite."
