In her haste to flee the palace before the fairy godmother's magic loses effect, Cinderella leaves behind a glass slipper.
James Marshall adds color and humor to the classic fairy tale with his beautiful illustrations. Retold by Barbara Karlin, Cinderella will be a favorite of all children. “Retold and illustrated with wit and humor, this is an excellent version of the favorite fairy tale.”—School Library Journal (starred review) “This collaboration is whimsical and fresh and full of undeniable child appeal.”—The Horn Book “Saccharine-free and filled with a robust, earthy humor, this rendition has a studied nonchalance laced with wit. . . . [It] will take its rightful place on the fairy-tale shelves, but won’t sit there for long!”—Booklist (starred review)
