CINDERELLA And Other Stories

A fresh look at the girl with the glass slipper, seen without the influence of either Hollywood or Disney, here are peasants and hags and fairy godmothers who seem a little more real, a trifle less band-boxy than those shown in most modern illustrated fairy tales. In this volume appear Cinderella, Puss in Boots, The Fairies and Donkey Skin, richly alive in pictures of a moonlit and subdued color tonality. While J. L. Huens' illustrations are not so rich in pattern, design, dark and light as those of Rojankovsky, and his animals are not so frisky as the delightful denizens of Disneyland, there is a unity and serenity which is both beautiful and soothing.
