By: Paul Fleischman

A beautiful, mysterious girl appears at the king's ball, wearing a golden sarong . . . a cloak of kingfisher feathers . . . a red kimono. She dances with the headman's son until the first rooster crows, and then she runs away, leaving a dainty glass slipper . . . a golden shoe . . . a straw sandal. With thousands of versions from many cultures, Cinderella is one of the world's best-loved stories. This tapestry-like retelling stitches together elements from many of these versions.
