This is a novelization of the fairy tale Cinderella which goes into great detail of her mistreatment by her stepmother and stepsisters, the cowardice of her father, Cinderella's kindness to an old woman who turns out to be her fairy godmother, details of the ball, and Cinderella's rewards for staying good-natured for so long under adversity.
In The Little Bookroom, Eleanor Farjeon mischievously tilts our workaday world to reveal its wonders and follies. Her selection of her favorite stories describes powerful--and sometimes exceedingly silly--monarchs, and commoners who are every bit their match; musicians and dancers who live for aft rather than earthly reward; and a goldfish who wishes to "marry the Moon, surpass the Sun, and possess the World."
Some of the stories included in this collection: Old Surly and the boy, The king and the corn, The king's daughter, cries for the moon, Young Kate, The clumber pup, The miracle of the poor island, The girl who kissed the peach-tree, The giant and the mite, The little dressmaker, The The Connemara donkey, The glass peacock, The Kind Farmer.
This charming story is a variation of Rumpelstiltskin. Can Poll save her sister Doll and the newborn baby from the Spindle Imp? And is the Silver Curlew really the Lady in the Moon?
