Buy Cinderella of the Nile

We’re delighted that our multicultural fairytale Cinderella of the Nile is out now in paperback!

Written by Carnegie Award-winning author Beverley Naidoo and illustrated by Marjan Vafaeian, it’s a retelling of the oldest known version of the Cinderella story. The book is also out now in the US in hardback!

Rhodopis is a Greek girl who is sold into slavery by bandits and taken to Egypt. Along the way she becomes friends with the storyteller Aesop and a host of playful animals.

Her master gives her a pair of beautiful rose-red slippers, making three other servants jealous. 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.

The first in our ‘One Story, Many Voices’ series, this ancient story of Cinderella finds its echo in fairy tales all over the world.
