Her left her and soon she has a plan to give her dear Cendrillon the gift of a love that will change her life Adapted from a traditional Creole story this fresh retelling captures all the age old romance and magic of Cinderella melding it with the vivid beauty of the Caribbean and the musical language of the island. Cendrillon is a French Creole adaptation of the traditional Cinderella set in the Caribbean as is recommended for children in kindergarten through third grade The story is told in first person from the point of view of Cendrillon s godmother The story is uite different from the traditional tale Cendillion s godmother has a magic wand made of mahogany which she can only use to help someone she truly loves Her godmother uses the wand to make Cendrillon a beautiful gown and carriage so she can go to the ball The prince and Cendrillion fall in love at the ball and the prince uses the pink slipper Cendrillion leaves at the ball to find his true love As always the prince and Cindrillion get married and live happily ever after This is a heartwarming story filled with the themes of love romance passion and the feeling of living happily ever after This was a uniue telling since it was told from the view of the grandmother This story is also interesting in the fact that it includes an explanation about the source of the cultural material included as well a note about the changes made when writing this version The Caribbean language and culture was included throughout the book and the glossary and pronunciation guide at the back of the book was also a nice addition Brian Pinkney s illustrations were done in scratchboard gouache and oil paints and illustrate the flavor and culture of the island well The bright colors used bring this story to life as they are very colorful detailed and show emotion Overall this is a very interesting and culturally sound version of the Caribbean Cinderella
