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 version tells the story of a poor washer woman and her god daughter Cendrillion The story takes place on the island of Martiniue For the most part it ollows the classic Pee Wee Scouts treasury (Pee Wee Scouts, fairytale but the author includes the beautiful Creole language and aew details that pay tribute to the Caribbean culture Pinkney s illustrations or this book are breathtaking and vibrant I believe he used both scratchboard and watercolor to complete the illustrations The colors and textures add to the airytale and also allow readers to visualize the cultural aspect of this book Each page has a detailed illustration that brings the words to life The illustrations also help to explain some of the Creole language which might be new to many reading this book This would be a great

Merit The literary element that is noteworthy to this story is the style incorporating the culture of Caribbean into a classic tale Cinderella This is a very key element because it helps introduce ways of telling classic tales using different cultures younger children Robert D San Souci did a great job at telling this tale using the Caribbean cultureReader ResponseClassroom Connection To connect this to my classroom prior in the week I would have read another illustrated version of Cinderella and each day of the week I would ind different cultured books of Cinderella to tell At the end of the week I would put my students into various groups and assign them two of the books we read and give them manipulatives I would tell my children to create a Venn diagram comparing the two books that I assigned them and then each group would present them to the class This would discuss the different cultures and different aspects of each Cinderella story I would invite my class to compare and contrast two different versions of Cinderella paying attention to the cultures An entertaining and interesting retelling of Cinderella with a Caribbean Don't Hex with Texas flare The French Creole vocabulary is used skillfullyits with the low of the story rather than being rustrating or jarring The glossary in the back explains anything that one couldn t gather via context Also
