ANGKAT : THE CAMBODIAN CINDERELLA
Auburn, CA : Sheri's Books,
IL K-3 RL 6.1
you know that different versions of the Cinderella story are found in nearly
every language and every country in the world? This book gives us the version
from Cambodia, one of the countries in South East Asia. The muted watercolor
pictures show us a very different world from our usual Cinderella. Many
of the clothes and surroundings remind us of a neighboring county, ancient
Siam and the exotic farmland and lush jungle scenes are very beautiful.
The artist, Eddie Flotte grew up here in Pennsylvania, although he now
lives in Hawaii. Read this book for a dreamy, enchanting tale of loyalty,
duty, compassion, and finally, justice. (Jeannie Bellavance firstname.lastname@example.org
