"This Is The First Time "is the first time have heard of a Caribbean version of the classic fairy tale Cendrillon A Caribbean Cinderella is a uniue etelling of the classic fairy tale by Robert D San Souci along with illustrations by Brian Pinkney and it is about a young woman named Cendrillon who with the help of her godmother tries to go to the ball to meet the handsome prince Cendrillon A Caribbean Cinderella is a brilliant etelling of the classic Cinderella tale that everyone will loveI have eally enjoyed this version of the classic fairy tale Robert D San Souci has as usual done an excellent job at etelling this French Caribbean folktale and what I Biopower: Foucault and Beyond really loved about Robert D San Souci s writing is that it is told from the godmother s point of view This aspect of the story was uite unusual for me since I have alwaysead the story from Cinderella s point of view and this was the first time that I have Jane Doe and the Cradle of All Worlds read a version of Cinderella from the godmother s point of view Ieally did enjoy seeing the story told from the fairy godmother s point of view because it Is That Even a Country, Sir! really helped me see how close the godmother was to Cendrillon and you gain a better understanding of the story if it is told from a first person s point of view Another aspect of the story Ieally loved was how the godmother was so close to Cendrillon that you can see the うそつきリリィ 3 [Usotsuki Lily 3] relationship as like a mother and daughterelationship and it made the book so heartwarming to The Prince read through As I love toead in various fairy tales and folktales that originate from other countries I was glad that there was a French Creole translation key at the end of the book since it A Bold Carnivore: An Alphabet of Predators really helped me understand the story much better and I love learning about languages from different countries so this was a treat toead Brian Pinkney s illustrations are beyond beautiful in this book as all the characters look extremely Goodbye Sarajevo: A True Story of Courage, Love and Survival realistic yet colorful at the same time I loved the scratchy look that Brian Pinkney provided to the illustrations since iteally made the illustrations stand out My favorite illustration int his book was of the mansion of Monsieur Thibault as his mansion is huge and is surrounded by palm trees and flowers and the purple sky eally brought out the true beauty of seeing a lit up mansion out the true beauty of a lit up mansion at Overall Cendrillon A Caribbean Cinderella is a fantastic etelling of Cinderella that every child who love fairy tales will definitely enjoy for many years I would Mathruhridayam recommend this book to children ages five and up since the French Creole language might be hard for younger children to understandReview is also on Rabbit Ears Book Blog An entertaining and interestingetelling of Cinderella with a Caribbean flare The French Creole vocabulary is used skillfully fits with the flow of the story ather than being frustrating or jarring The glossary in the back explains anything that one couldn t gather via context Also appreciated the story being told from the Godmother s point of view a charming variation and I liked that she and Cindrillon had a long established bond To check out my eviews need everyone to stop with what you are doing and e.
