About this product
- DescriptionOnce upon a time in Greece, fate left a young girl an orphan. Her stepmother was so hateful that she counted every drop of water the orphan drank! But with the help of Nature's blessings, the orphan was showered with gifts: brilliance from the Sun, beauty from the Moon, gracefulness from the Dawn and even a tiny pair of blue shoes from the Sea. When the prince comes to visit their village, he only has eyes for the mysterious beauty. Children will love this fanciful folk retelling of the Cinderella story, accompanied by lumius watercolor illustrations by Giselle Potter.
- Author BiographyANTHONY L. MANNA and SOULA MITAKIDOU's first collaboration, Mr. Semolina-Semolinus: A Greek Folktale, illustrated by Giselle Potter, was an ALA-ALSC Notable Children's Book, and a New York Public Library Best Book for Children. Anthony has taught at universities in Turkey, Greece, and the U.S. Soula grew up in Greece, and storytelling was an important part of her family's traditions. She now lives in Thessaloniki, Greece, where she teaches at Aristotle University. GISELLE POTTER's children's books include The Boy Who Loved Words by Roni Schotter, a Parents' Choice Gold Award winner; and Kate and the Beanstalk by Mary Pope Osborne, a Publishers Weekly and School Library Journal Best Book and an ALA-ALSC Notable Children's Book.
