I live on a green-green island in the so-blue "Mer des Antilles", the Caribbean Sea. Long ago, when I was a child, my family was poor. When my mother died, she left me only one thing: a wand of mahogany. (from the first line)
The creators of the Caldecott Honor winner, The Faithful Friend, introduce a Creole variant of the familiar Cinderella tale set in the Caribbean and narrated by the godmother who helps Cendrillon find true love. *Author: San Souci, Robert D./ Perrault, Charles/ Pinkney, J.

From the Publisher:
Set in an exotic island, "Cendrillon" is a fresh twist on a beloved tale. San Souci and Pinkney combine humor, a feisty, unforgettable godmother and all the romance and magic that has made "Cinderella" one of the most popular fairy tales of all time. Full-color illustrations.
Annotation:
A Caribbean version of the "Cinderella" story. Here the fairy godmother is a poor washerwoman who sets out to help Cendrillion after the girl falls in love with a rich man's son. The washerwoman uses her magical powers to create carriages, horses, a coach, and a beautiful gown so that Cendrillion can attend her beloved's birthday party in style. Illustrated with color paintings.
Author Bio
Charles Perrault
Charles Perrault is commonly recognized as the author of--or at least the first person to collect and write down--such tales as Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, and Tom Thumb. The formal collecting of these stories made a tremendous difference in the way literature for children was viewed. Up until this point, stories for children were mainly written to teach them how to behave as adults. Most of Perrault's tales do contain the moral lesson of good defeating evil, although they are written more for entertainment than instruction.
