Book Review - Walt Disney's Cinderella
About the Book
"This is a story about darkness and light, about sorrow and joy, about something lost and something found. This is a story about love."
Cinderella's story has been told over and over, but never has it been touched by the kind of magic created by the contributors of this book. Mary Blair painted the original pictures for Walt Disney's incomparable animated film, and here her elegant art is gathered together as a picture book. Cynthia Rylant's stories about hardscrabble lives have won not only awards and honors, but hearts. Who better to take a young girl from the darkness of her garret room to the light and brilliance of a ballroom? Together these two great artists have created something quite astonishing: a Cinderella that is breathtaking, heartrending, and joyous, both for those who are coming to the tale for the very first time, and for those who think they know it well.
My Take on the Book
This was a beautifully written and illustrated story. While it does follow the story that you will know and love, there are some slight changes. The illustrations are simply amazing and jump off each and every page. I loved the mix of colors that make each page pop. My girls love the love story that is contained within. All-in-all if you are a fan of Cinderella, you will love this book and the new look and feel that it provides the overall story in general.
