Dreams come true with a little hope and a wave of a fairy godmother's wand. But will the prince find Cinderella after her ball gown turns back into rags? This classic tale is retold by Ruth Sanderson with the very youngest of readers in mind. Although she is mistreated by her stepmother and stepsisters, a kind-hearted young woman manages to attend the palace ball with the help of her fairy godmother.

The glitter on the cover foreshadows the glamour in Ruth Sanderson's retelling of Cinderella (when the fairy godmother transforms her, "Cinderella was thrilled"). Although based on Charles Perrault's classic tale, this version weaves in elements of the Brothers Grimm: Cinderella forgives her wicked stepmother and stepsisters, but when it's time for her to wed the prince, a flock of vengeful birds pecks the terrible trio, confining them to their house. Even as the heroine tends the fire, readers will see her beauty.
