Charming three-dimensional scenes transform the story of Cinderella into a fairy-tale gift to treasure.

Jane Ray's layered cut-paper artwork elegantly retells the time-honored tale of a scullery maid turned royalty. Six meticulously detailed tableaux include a shabby kitchen, a gorgeous nightscape in a magical garden, and a sparkling ballroom filled with nobles, as well as Cinderella's iconic gilded pumpkin coach. Side panels unfold to reveal the story's text and evoke an evening at the theater. Little girls who dream of fairy godmothers will adore this unique portrayal of the world's most famous princess -- no glass slippers required.
