Buy Cinderella of the Nile
Here’s a fantastic new title from Tiny Owl, expanding their repertoire of bringing amazing world stories to us by digging into the origins of tales we may already be familiar with…
There are so many versions of the classic fairy tale “Cinderella” but in “Cinderella of the Nile”, Beverley Naidoo and Marjan Vafaeian take us right back in time to a world where two mighty civilisations established vast empires across the continents.
Rhodopis is a Greek girl who is sold into slavery by bandits and taken to Egypt.
But when Horus, the falcon, sweeps in to steal her slipper, Rhodopis has little idea that this act will lead her to the King of Egypt, and perhaps lift her from a life of poverty and slavery into one of prosperity and fortune.
The first in Tiny Owl’s ‘One Story, Many Voices’ series, this ancient story of Cinderella finds its echo in fairy tales all over the world.
