A Cinderella Story From China
Retold by Ai-Ling Louie, illustrated by Ed Young. 8" x 10", 32 pages, paperback. The story as it appears in "The Miscellaneous Record of Yu Yang", a book which dates from the Tang dynasty (618-907 AD) and is the oldest recorded version of this story. This is an English translation of the Ching dynasty version (1644-1912). Here may well be the "original" of the story we recognize as Cinderella in the West.
