What Kind of Book is Yeh-Shen: A Cinderella Story from China

Trusted Reviews & Ratings

The Book Snob Mom
Mom, Avid Reader, Austen Fangirl

A beautifully told Cinderella story from China. The very sensitive reader may be alarmed by the stabbing of Cinderella’s beloved fish and how the stepmother and stepsister are crushed by rocks in the final line, but these are the only two gruesome incidents. The illustrations are lovely and the recurring pattern of the fish is original.
