To check out my reviews need everyone to stop with what you are doing and read this beautiful and cultural story of an iconic classic of Cinderella Except this is the Caribbean version I read this book in the 4th grade as it was featured in our textbook and I loved everything that dealt with fairy tales back then so I was hooked on it from the beginning Until I started noticing the differences that I was a bit disappointed but reading it now felt amazing and a fresh of breath air for a classic story Everyone on the planet knows the story of Cinderella there s Disney s versions films musicals books and cartoons that illustrate this classic My favorite 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 from one thing to another but the big catch is you can only use the magic for someone you love She took care of this friend who has a daughter named Cendrillon and when the mother passed away in many ways the godmother takes care of Cendrillon from afarCendrillon gets a new stepmother and she is awful and the interesting aspect is the father 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 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 and frustration get personal and enjoys life to the fullest Then one day the godmother makes the connection that Cendrillon is not acting like herself and figures out that there s a special birthday partyball for Monsieur Thibault s son Paul tonight They are not royalty but Monsieur Thibault is one of the richest man in the islandCendrillon family doesn t permit her to attend the ball but the godmother makes the connection that she can 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 gown for 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 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 speak for 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 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 her family 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 for 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 finally 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 have read many different versions of Cinderella during my time but this is the first time I have heard of a Caribbean version of the classic fairy tale Cendrillon A Caribbean Cinderella is a uniue retelling of the classic fairy 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 fairy tale Robert D San Souci has as usual done an excellent job at retelling this French Caribbean folktale and what I really loved about Robert D San Souci s writing is that it is told from the godmother s point of view This aspect of the story was uite unusual for me since I have always read the story from Cinderella s point of view and this was the first time that I have read a version of Cinderella from the godmother s point of view I really did enjoy seeing the story told from the fairy 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 from a first 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 fairy tales and folktales that originate 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 languages from 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 favorite illustration int his book was of the mansion of Monsieur Thibault as his mansion is huge and is surrounded by palm trees and flowers 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 fantastic retelling of Cinderella that every child who love fairy tales will definitely enjoy for many years I would recommend this book to children ages five and up since the French Creole language might be hard for younger children to understandReview is also on Rabbit Ears Book Blog
