Review: This is a lovely version of Cinderella. Coupled with the gorgeous pictures, the story is told in simple, eloquent prose. Rough Face's cruel sisters make her tend the fire. The sparks scorch her face and hands, and leave her hair burnt and ugly. When her haughty sisters fail to impress the sister of the Invisible Man with their prefect closes and beautiful faces, everyone laughs when Rough Face tries, in her homemade clothes and ugly looks. But it's a fairy tale - and everyone knows, it's the heart that matters.
I found this story delightful and enjoyable - perfect for the lover of Fairy Tales and Folklore, and an excellent addition to any child's library.
