Yeh-Hsien a Chinese Cinderella in Portuguese and English retold by Dawn Casey and illustrated by Richard Holland. The oldest version of the Cinderella story originates from China. Befriended by a magical fish, Yeh-hsien is granted her dearest wish - to go to the village festival where she loses a slipper... What a wonderful find....It is salutary for children to learn that traditional tales crop up across the entire world in very similar forms...a rags-to-riches story, a virtue rewarded story, a triumph of goodness over meanness and greed, with the wicked stepmother and stepsisters getting their rightful come-uppance.
