Review

"Gail Carson Levine has a real gift for humor, and her heroine is a real, live girl: strong, funny, assertive, and confused, like all the rest of us. "Ella Enchanted" is true, touching, and very funny."-- Karen Cushman, author of the Newbery Medal -- winning "The Midwife's Apprentice" and the Newbery Honor book "Catherine, called Birdy""Gail Carson Levine brings humor and wit to her story and gives us an intriguing, funny, spirited heroine. This book is fresh and charming!"-- Sharon Creech, author of the Newbery Medal-winning "Walk Two Moons""This refreshing take on one of the world's most popular fairy tales preserves the spirit of the original but adds plenty of hujorous twists and a spunky, intelligent female lead."("Pointer review")-- "The Kirkus Rewiews"

From the Back Cover

How can a fairy's
blessing be such a curse?

At her birth, Ella of Frell was the unfortunate recipient of a foolish fairy's gift -- the "gift' of obedience. Ella must obey any order given to her, whether it's hopping on one foot for a day and a half, or chopping off her own head! But strong-willed Ella does not tamely accept her fate. Against a bold backdrop of princes, ogres, giants, wicked stepsisters, and fairy godmothers, Ella goes on a quest to break the curse -- once and for all.

In this incredible debut novel comes the richly entertaining story of Ella of Frell, who at birth was given the gift of obedience by a fairy. Ella soon realizes that this gift is little better than a curse, for how can she truly be herself if at anytime anyone can order her to hop on one foot, or cut off her hand, or betray her kingdom'and she'll have to obey? Against a bold tapestry of princes, ogres, giants, wicked stepsisters, and fairy godmothers, Ella's quest to break the curse once and for all and discover who she really is is as sharply funny as Catherine, Called Birdy and as richly poignant as Beauty, and has all the marks of a classic in the making.
