which is godmotheris godmother Cendrillon When the narrator mothers passed away she gave her this magic wand that could change objects rom one thing to another but the big catch is you Can Only Use The only use the My Wife's Affair for someone you love She took care of thisriend who has a daughter named Cendrillon and when the mother passed away in many ways the godmother takes care of Cendrillon Chicken, Chicken, Duck! from afarCendrillon gets a new stepmother and she is awful and the interesting aspect is theather lets the abuse because he is afraid of his new wife Um The uestion that pops in my head is then WHY DID YOU MARRY HER He never dies in the book which I Inspirations found to be a huge difference in the book and a bit sad that you don t have the courage to stand up and defend your daughterCendrillon is treated as a slave and while that may seem tragic she never lets the pain andrustration get personal and enjoys life to the ullest Then one day the godmother makes the connection that Cendrillon is not acting like herself and igures out that there s a special birthday partyball or Monsieur Thibault s son Paul tonight They are not royalty but Monsieur Thibault is one of the richest man in the islandCendrillon amily doesn t permit her to attend the ball but the godmother makes the connection that she can Slo Mo! finally use the magic wand to help her godchild When everyone in Cendrillon household leaves to the party the godmother uses her magic and creates a phenomenal carriage and a beautiful gownor Cendrillon and both head to the partyThe illustrations are one of the best I have ever seen in a children s book and make the magic and beauty of both the Carribean and Cendrillon story to pop out with color and her dress is spectacular in the illustrations better than the Disney animated versionPlus I love the aspect that the godmother is always watching over Cendrillon and by attending the ball she doesn t appear like this crazy woman who popped out of nowhere and has magical powers I do not know Poor Mrs. Rigsby for other cultures but especially the Hispanic community most huge parties that are celebrated in someone s household if a girl that hasn t reached the age of 18 and wants to attend she cannot go by herself It seems impolite prevents the girl to be alone with a boy and poor manners on the parents part I can only speakor the Cuban side and I ve seen this happen countless times in my upbringingThis story reminded me a lot of the movie Ever After with Drew Barry I used to watch it countless times as a child and I believe because it was a Cinderella story I was just entranced with real people What I loved about that movie is the magic aspect doesn t exist so she gets caught when she attends the party I had the same Pirates, Ships, and Sailors feeling and I thought Cendrillon would get caught at the ball but I believe since she never cleaned herself up and put makeup and all the beautiful aspect of getting dressed up it possible that heramily didn t recognize her or they were suspicious as to who is this beautiful woman who walked inYou know the rest of the story of Cinderella so there isn t much left to explain Midnight comes and all the magic disappears Surprisingly the slippers don t revert back to its original state and Paul makes the decision that he will search or this girl and marry her I love how the author made the reference to the original story and in many ways insulted it at the same time When the stepsister is trying on the slipper the godmother says maybe if you cut of her toes it will inally War Made New: Technology, Warfare, and the Course of History: 1500 to Today fit and the stepmother gave a look that could kill I was laughing immediately because that s the original story of Cinderella Once Cendrillon tries on the slippers they get married lived Happily Ever After The End I like this version of Cinderella because the bad people aren t associated with being ugly and being pretty doesn t make you the good one Yes Cinderella is beautiful in her dress but there s no emphasis on ugly step sisters or step mother The step mother is puffed up proud because of heramily s origins which I would actually consider to be a A Boy in Winter flaw in a person Being ugly isn t a characterlaw That s what really bugs me about most Cinderella storiesAlso the godmother is a person not a Frost at Midnight fairy and is the narrator which gives the story a niceee. Her left her and soon she has a plan to give her dear Cendrillon the gift of a love that will change her life Adapted Princess Baby, Night-Night from a traditional Creole story thisresh retelling captures all the age old romance and magic of Cinderella melding it with the vivid beauty of the Caribbean and the musical language of the island. ,

during my time but this is the irst time I have heard of a Caribbean version of the classic airy tale Cendrillon A Caribbean Cinderella is a uniue retelling of the classic airy tale by Robert D San Souci along with illustrations by Brian Pinkney and it is about a young woman named Cendrillon who with the help of her godmother tries to go to the ball to meet the handsome prince Cendrillon A Caribbean Cinderella is a brilliant retelling of the classic Cinderella tale that everyone will loveI have really enjoyed this version of the classic airy tale Robert D San Souci has as usual done an excellent job at retelling this French Caribbean olktale and what I really loved about Robert D San Souci s writing is that it is told rom the godmother s point of view This aspect of the story was uite unusual Nini for me since I have always read the storyrom Cinderella s point of view and this was the I Love My Dad (Disney Princess) first time that I have read a version of Cinderellarom the godmother s point of view I really did enjoy seeing the story told Flight, Vol. 7 from theairy godmother s point of view because it really helped me see how close the godmother was to Cendrillon and you gain a better understanding of the story if it is told rom a irst person s point of view Another aspect of the story I really loved was how the godmother was so close to Cendrillon that you can see the relationship as like a mother and daughter relationship and it made the book so heartwarming to read through As I love to read in various airy tales and olktales that originate Camp Rex from other countries I was glad that there was a French Creole translation key at the end of the book since it really helped me understand the story much better and I love learning about languagesrom different countries so this was a treat to read Brian Pinkney s illustrations are beyond beautiful in this book as all the characters look extremely realistic yet colorful at the same time I loved the scratchy look that Brian Pinkney provided to the illustrations since it really made the illustrations stand out My avorite illustration int his book was of the mansion of Monsieur Thibault as his mansion is huge and is surrounded by palm trees and lowers and the purple sky really brought out the true beauty of seeing a lit up mansion at night Overall Cendrillon A Caribbean Cinderella is a Touch of Enchantment fantastic retelling of Cinderella that every child who loveairy tales will definitely enjoy When Dads Don't Grow Up for many years I would recommend this book to children agesive and up since the French Creole language might be hard or younger children to understandReview is also on Rabbit Ears Book Blog Cendrillion is a Caribbean twist on the classic Cinderella story This
