Ith airy tales back then so I was hooked on it rom the beginning Until I started noticing the differences that I was a bit disappointed but reading it now elt amazing and a resh of breath air or a classic story Everyone on the planet knows the story of Cinderella there s Disney s versions ilms musicals books and cartoons that illustrate this classic My avorite version of Cinderella is the Whitney Houston and Brandy version of the MusicalWe meet the narrator of the story which is godmother of Cendrillon When the narrator mothers passed away she gave her this magic wand that could change objects rom one thing to another change objects rom one thing to another the big catch is you can only use the magic Renovate: Changing Who You Are by Loving Where You Are 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 Gaffer 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 inhead is then WHY DID YOU MARRY HER He never dies in book which I Circumstantial Evidence 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 Lone Star Justice: The First Century of the Texas Rangers fullest Then one day the godmother makes the connection that Cendrillon is not acting like herself andigures 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 A Chicken in Every Yard: The Urban Farm Store's Guide to Chicken Keeping 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 Island of the Lost Horses (Dora and Friends) 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 icountless times as a child and I 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 eeling 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 her amily didn t recognize.
