Buy Cinderella of the Nile
This is a refreshing change to the traditional story of Cinderella, bringing fresh new light and an engaging story with a difference. This is the earliest-known version of Cinderella and it’s certainly new to me. Rhodopis was a beautiful Greek girl who was stolen from her parents by bandits and taken to Egypt. In her new home, she meets storyteller Aesop but soon she is moved on again – where she meets three cruel sisters. The twist to the tale comes when Horus, the falcon, sweoops in and steals her slipper… with unexpected results. Marjan Vafeian has illustrated the story with stunning modern illustrations full of shape and colour. An unusual and engrossing version.
