Overview
The classic story of Cinderella gets a fresh twist in this vibrant Mexican spin on the beloved fairy tale

Once upon a time, there was a girl who lived in a little cottage with her stepmother and two stepsisters...

The classic tale of Cinderella gets a fresh twist in this debut title of a brand-new board book series, Once Upon a World. With Mexico as the backdrop, and vibrant artwork from Mexican illustrator Sandra Equihua, Cinderella is still the same girl with a fairy godmother and a glass slipper--but she's totally reimagined. Once Upon a World offers a multicultural take on the fairy tales we all know and love. Because these tales are for everyone, everywhere.

In one of two board books kicking off the Once Upon a World series, Perkins transplants the story of Cinderella to Mexico, though in only the most superficial of ways. Mexican illustrator Equihua embraces the setting in her digital cartoons, from the tiled floor of Cinderella’s home to the layered white gown she wears to the ball. But with no real attempt made to integrate Mexican life into the retelling (not a word of Spanish is used, and the ball is thrown by the king, despite the nation’s brief history with monarchy), the overall effect is that of cultural window-dressing. Snow White, set in Japan, is available simultaneously. Ages 2–4. (Sept.)
