Beginning with the discovery of old letters in a secret compartment in an  ornate chest, Cendrillon: The True Story of Cinderella by Tom Hendricks  relates a new version of the beloved fairy tale. Written by Queen  Cendrillon to her son, Prince William, the letters describe the life  Cendrillon knew as the daughter of a hard working woodcutter who  remarried after the death of his wife. The stepmother, Rachel, and her  two spoiled daughters, Phillis and Marsha, resented Cendrillon and reduced her to the position of servant after the death of her father.  Unable to attend the ball because of the demands of the others,  Cendrillon wished she could have gone and up popped a fairy godmother!  Of course, the Prince was not at all interested in any of the young ladies  until Cendrillon arrived and, as they say, the rest was history. A lost  slipper, a country-wide search, and a happy ending lead to the arrival of a  new, young Prince.

Tom Hendricks uses a unique historical perspective to bring new life to the  tale of Cinderella. Cendrillon: The True Story of Cinderella engages the  reader with just enough differences to the traditional version to make it  quite enjoyable. Alternative explanations for events add to the interest,  and taking the story past the wedding contributes even more to the  historical flavor. Hidden within the story are lessons about love, loss and  acceptable behavior, not to mention the definition of true beauty.  Intended for children but refreshing for older readers as well, Cendrillon:

The True Story of Cinderella is a delightful version of a favorite fairy tale.
