What's Cinderella About

Publisher Summary

The classic story of Cinderella gets a fresh twist in this vibrant Mexican spin on the beloved fairy tale! Once upon a time, there was a girl who lived in a little cottage with her stepmother and two stepsisters… The classic tale of Cinderella gets a fresh twist in this debut title of a brand-new board book series, Once Upon a World. With Mexico as the backdrop, and vibrant artwork from Mexican illustrator Sandra Equihua, Cinderella is still the same girl with a fairy godmother and a glass slipper—but she’s totally reimagined. Once Upon a World offers a multicultural take on the fairy tales we all know and love. Because these tales are for everyone, everywhere.

This board book version of Cinderella is perfect for little hands that want to hear a condensed, but still detailed, version of the story. There’s a good amount of text in this board book, and the illustrations are stunning!

I love the premise of this series—traditional fairy tales represented in various artistic styles from around the world—and I love the illustrations in this book, which tell the story of Cinderella using a Mexican style. It’s fun to look at and fun to read. The only downside for us is that there are kind of a lot of words per page, so it’s a bit of a slow read.
