Description

pEveryone knows the story of Cinderella, but not everyone knows the story of how Pear Blossom, the Korean Cinderella, is treated like a slave by her jealous stepmother and forced to perform three impossible tasks. With the help of magical creatures, Pear Blossom not only accomplishes the tasks, but she also becomes a nobleman's wife. Full color. br //pp"Climo and Heller conflate several Korean variants of Cinderella to offer up the story of Pear Blossom, a lovely girl who is sorely mistreated by her nasty stepmother and stepsister.… At once comfortingly familiar and intriguingly exotic, the text is especially noteworthy for its instructive but unobtrusive incorporation of Korean words." — Publishers Weekly. /pp"Heller's paintings are exotically lush and colorful as well as engaging.… An agreeable retelling of the Cinderella story. — iBooklist/i /pp Notable 1994 Children's Trade Books in Social Studies (NCSS/CBC)/p
