Format: Hardcover
This is a masterpiece of good painter's work, together with the text we have a high quality book useful to both young and elder readers. It was pure joy to include this book with the rest of the childrens' books that I collect. Although it is recent, I regard it as vintage and rare.Every house should have one.

Kinuko Y. Craft is a genius with a heart of gold! 13 Jun 2001
By Melinda Harrison - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Okay, I love fairy tales, but I bought this book because Kinuko Y Craft illustrated it. Craft's work is absolutely stunning, not to mention romantic and atmospheric. I buy any book which has a Craft cover (Patricia McKillip's are just wonderful).
But I have to say this, in all honesty, this book just took my breath away. The paintings are almost beyond words. Trust me. You have to see them to know Craft's genius, and as one reviewer wrote, never has Cinderella looked more beautiful, more enchanting, more magical. If I didn't know better, I would think Craft really is part fae. If you love fairy tales, this Cinderella is a must for your collection.
For adults, children, and all who love magic and fantasy.

Exquisite retelling of Cinderella 14 Aug 2001
By A gamer dad in Virginia - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Another absolutely amazing book by K. Y. Craft. Here she brings us a "more genuine" retelling of the famous tale - far more rich in detail than the Disney production. The pictures are lush images from dreams, and the story is more detailed and enjoyable. If you are looking for an alternative to the Disney version (one in which the sisters are not physically violent with Cinderella) this is the one that will make a young girl's dreams soar. My 3 year old loved it when she got it for Christmas, and it is still a favorite. I also recommend "The Twelve Dancing Princesses" by K. Y. Craft as well, which is available in an affordable paperback that should not be missed.

Lush paintings alongside nice prose 31 Jan 2002
By Whitney S. Christiansen - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Craft adds quite a bit to Charles Perrault's original terse version of this tale, including a scene with a wounded bird being tended by Cinderella. The bird is reminiscent of the Grimm brothers version, however, and serves a nice touch at the end. It is not the story which is so outstanding about this book, though. I was introduced to Craft's work through my college's poster fair, but nothing prepared me for the exquisite nature of her work in "Cinderella." This version embodies all the fantastic and beautiful elements which we want to see in a fairy tale like "Cinderella," but so often illustrators take an avant-garde approach, or seek to focus on Perrault's prose and ignore the chance to fully realize the story visually. However, we all know the story - we want to SEE it. Craft obliges by bringing the story to life luxuriantly and without holding back. She deserves a hand of applause.

The stuff of dreams lay within! 11 Oct 2005
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
What a magnificent depiction of this timeless tale. If it matters to you that your child know the beauty of words fitly put together and the loveliness of art then this is the Cinderella you want. The language is elegant and the paintings are exquisite. I couldn't stop looking at the paintings and relishing the detail and emotion. I am currently building my daughter's library and how glad I am that I didn't get Disney's Cinderella, for that is not the Cinderella I want her to know.

Kindness, humility and forgiveness constitutes a royal heart. Cinderella had the heart of a queen before she ever came into the presence of her king. That should make her a staple in any child's library.

Rich illustrations 11 Oct 2000
By Heidi Anne Heiner - Published on
Format: Hardcover
The dedication in this book reads: "For All Dreamers." The illustrations are ethereal and lush, very similar to the Cinderella I imagined when I first heard the story in my childhood. Craft takes her readers back to a traditional setting where the gowns are elaborate and the colors are vibrant. Little girls will especially enjoy the illustrations as they dream of their own "princess" dresses.
Fans of Kinuko Y. Craft will adore this new book. Some of you may know her for her illustrations of other children's books such as "The Twelve Dancing Princesses." Others may know her as the cover artist of many of Patricia McKillip's beautiful books. However you may know her work, you will enjoy this new edition of Cinderella.
