    1 thought on “Cinderella”

    1. Gorgeous re-telling of Cinderella's story, with a Parisian flare. McClintock set her story during the time of King Louis XIV (not that the words really reflect this, but the beautiful illustrations do, especially in terms of the palace, the attire and the HAIR!) This story even has an extra-happy ending.

    2. In this version of Cinderella that retold by Barbara McClintock, it has many of the classic Cinderella features. At the ball in this version, as per the illustrations, Cinderella is wearing a pink dress with blue and purple floral. It is very pretty, but not typical of classic Cinderella. Also in this version Cinderella makes it home on the first night, but it is in fact the second night in which she is runs away leaving behind a glass slipper. The rest of the story is the same as the other trad [...]

    3. Pretty version of the Cinderella story, with text based on the Perrault version and illustrations influenced by the art of Watteau and Fragonard, but also by Cocteau and Hergé. McClintock modestly credits her research assistant and her cat.

    4. This was a classic Cinderella story. It had the remarried father with the mean step sisters. It was very beautifully told with funny and detailed art work. I would recommend this book to young reading around the age of 4 years to old.

    5. Genre: Traditional FantasyGrade Level: K-2nd gradeI love this story of Cinderella or "Cinderbottom" as told in the story. I think this book would be a great read when discussing traditional fantasy. I also think it is just good for students to read because I never knew the Cinderella story to go like this, I've heard the more popular "movie" version where there is only one ball, and the father isn't in the picture. This could teach the students that there are many sides to the stories and every [...]

    6. This story of Cinderella provides a new way to look at the story. The artwork is very elegant and the colors are nice and vibrant. The fact that there are flowers in the hair when attending the ball is a nice and unique feature to this book as it gives it this beautiful look. In this book the flowers used n Cinderellas hair could represent beauty because after all it did state she was better looking than her step sisters. Also the fact that there are multiple pictures on most pages really show h [...]

    7. This classic fairytale of Cinderella is beautifully illustrated here. The story is fairly true to the original except for the ending. Cinderella forgives her family for their mistreatment of her. Instead of taking revenge, Cinderella finds both of her step sisters a man to marry. This classic fairytale is one that students must learn. It is still one of my favorites. It would also be perfect for students to read on their own because of the familiarity of the story.

    8. I have never enjoyed this particular fairytale. I find it to be rather repulsive and don't think the message is a good one to share with children. It teaches you that in order to escape an abusive situation you have to change literally everything about yourself with the help of a fairy and some talking animals then hope a prince falls in love with you.

    9. Just as the traditional story, it is full of magic and love. I will always love the Cinderella stories, it is amazing how each story is the same yet different. The style of illustration used was very beautiful.

    10. Grade range: K-3Genre: Traditional LiteratureThis was a beautiful retelling of the classic Cinderella story! I, like most little girls, was in love with the story of Cinderella, it's just so magical! Barbara McClintock did a wonderful job of retelling this story and adding some of the most beautiful illustrations I have ever seen! If I was a young child reading this book, or having someone read it to me, I would be absolutely entranced. I was almost that way when I was reading it to myself. This [...]

    11. This is a good, solid version of the story with some influence from Perrault. The ball is held two night in succession, and it appears to be set just prior to the French Revolution (which I admit made me a little worried for the fate of the Prince and Cinderella). One of the more adorable aspects is a little gray cat who accompanies Cinderella nearly everywhere except the ball itself, even the wedding at the end.

    12. Cinderella by Barbara McClintock is about a girl whose mother has died, and her father has remarried. The stepmother mad Cinderella do all the house chores. Cinderella slept in an attic while her stepsisters had lavish bedroom. After a long day of chores, Cinderella would sit by the cinders at the fireplace. This is why she was called Cinderella. Her oldest stepsister called her Cinderbottom. One evening the girls were invited to the ball given by the king's son. The stepsisters were so excited [...]

    13. Cinderella by Barbara McCkintock is a folklore book that is intended for the primary age group.

The stepmother was cruel to Cinderella, making her sleep in the attic and do all the chores, so when the King’s son was holding a ball she could not go. A fairy [...]

    14. A This is a fun retelling of the classic fairy tale based on Perrault's tale. None of the blood, gore, or vengeance of the original version occurs here. This is the loveliest, fluffiest version of the tale possible. Cinderella is generous and kind - even offering her gift of oranges to the the evil step-sisters. The stepsisters were "all terribly sorry about how they had treated her" and the impotent father does not die, rather, he gives her away at her wedding to the prince. The gorgeous pen an [...]

    15. I'm sure I have seen the name Barbara McClintock as a recommendation to read before. Then when I opened this picture book to see this was based on the Perrault version of the story Cinderella I was enchanted as I know that is a version on my list for future years with fairy tales. I was enchanted by this book. While the story is so much more meaty than I have ever heard told I feel like I was missing this from my childhood knowledge of the story. Now I'm intrigued to wonder what else is out ther [...]

    21. I really enjoyed the illustrations in this book because it reminded me of the original book. The paintings look old and the wording used in the book remind me of folktales. Cinderella is my personal favorite princess story, and I really enjoyed this original take compared to the Disney story. The story line was very well written and it didn't stray from the original Cinderella, which most people would appreciate. The illustrations were so detailed and perfect that it was hard to find the words e [...]

    22. Barbara McClintock's retelling of the Perrault Cinderella is spot-on. The illustrations are charming and detailed with lots of pastel colors and images that reference the glamour of eighteenth-century France. The story is the classic Cinderella with some added details. The prince gives a gift of oranges to Cinderella as a token of his affection on the first of the two-night ball. It isn't until the ball's second night that Cinderella leaves her glass slipper behind for the prince to find. The st [...]

    23. This version follows the traditional storyline even including the ball being held for two nights. The father is a coward who fears the stepmother and leaves Cinderella to be bullied.One stepsister is fat and one is extremely thin. Cinderella herself has a waist the size of a thimble.The illustrations are intricately detailed and reminiscent of old Mother Goose books. The ball scenes feature gentlemen and ladies decked out in Louis XIV style clothing. The palace has chandeliers, richly painted ce [...]

    24. This version of Cinderella was one that I have never heard of. Before I began reading this book, I figured it would be the same story with the same things and I was surprised. Yes, it began the same way, yet there were some changes that the author made. For example, the father didn't die and Cinderella went to the ball twice. I felt like it was interesting seeing this version and children might like it but they might question the story that they have always heard. They might be confused as to wh [...]

    25. This story by Barbara McClintock is about Cinderella who is trapped inside the castle and surrounded by her evil step sisters. When Cinderella goes to the ball her slipper falls off, a guy who fell in love with Cinderella is now on the hunt to find her. But with her step sisters being the brats they are it is very hard for the guy to find Cinderella.I liked the story, it was your basic Cinderella story. I think that their are better stories about Cinderella better. In my opinion I think that the [...]

    26. I really enjoyed the illustrations in this book because it reminded me of the original book. The paintings look old and the wording used in the book remind me of folktales. The story line was very well written and it didn't stray from the original Cinderella which most people would appreciate. The illustrations were so detailed and perfect that it was hard to find the words especially since I already knew the story line of Cinderella. Having really good illustrations in children's book is a good [...]

    27. A cute version of Cinderella. The pictures are slightly cartoon-like with a real sweetness. There's very little hair, instead mob caps or elaborate wigs. The setting is in the 1700s. Because of small details and because sometimes there are four illustrations on a two-page spread, this may not be suitable for large group reading because children will want to see the details. I liked the picture showing the stepsisters' bedroom with steep stairs on the other page going up to Cinderella's attic roo [...]

    28. This is much friendlier "happily ever after" version of the story than I've seen before. First, Cinderella's father doesn't die, he's just bullied into the background of the story by his new wife. Second, the stepmother and sisters all get forgiveness and their own happy endings. Those are very safe things, but I don't think I would say that they make the story better or that the regular versions with the father dying and whatever happens with the step family are a problem for children so I don' [...]

    29. When I went to the library and asked the librarian to recommend me some good folk tales, she recommended me about 5 books and before I checked out the books, she gave me this book, Cinderella. As a young kid, I liked to read books. out of many books, I decided to memorize the whole entire book in English. Back then, I didn't remember much English that I had learned in Australia. I listened to the CD over and over again and memorized the entire book in a month. I still remember some lines even th [...]

    30. Barbara McClintock's version of Cinderella is based on the French telling of the story, complete with stately French dresses. The illustrations in this version are what make it stunning and it most closely mirrors the story that most of us think of when we envision Cinderella. In this tale, as in the original, Cinderella is a very kind soul even when confronted with the cruelty of her step-sisters. She offers them oranges at the ball and yearns for their friendship. In the end, she forgives them [...]
