Description
 
Acclaimed author and illustrator Tomie dePaola draws upon the Cinderella story in an original and imaginary tale set in Mexico, land of light and color. A haughty stepmother and her foolish daughters, a faithful nurse, a handsome young man in search of a wife -- and Adelita, the young woman at the center of the story -- are cast in this enchanting tale in which a “rebozo” -- shawl -- is the turning point for Javier as he searches for the beautiful and mysterious woman who disappears from his fiesta at midnight. A favorite theme takes a delightful twist in a tale that is both humorous and touching. Exquisite paintings, filled with the colorful folk art of Mexico, make this like no other Cinderella.
