Two beautiful sisters—one vain, the other kind—compete for the king's attention when he announces he is looking for a wife. Brillant full-color pen and ink watercolor paintings illustrate the Cinderella tale. Steptoe skillfully uses light and color to give emotional power to illustrations rich in detail of a specific region in Zimbabwe. Honor Book, 1987 CCBC Caldecott Discussion. (Ages 4-8)
