Cendrillon: A Caribbean Cinderella

By: Robert San Souci | Illustrated By: Brian Pinkney

In the book Cendrillon, a girl named Cendrillon had a godmother who she called Nannin. Nannin was the only person who loved Cendrillon after her mother passed away. Cendrillon's father was too mesmerized by her step-mother to stop her from treating her poorly. Cendrillon's godmother had a mahogany wand that her mother gave her. But the wand was only to be used for someone she loved. So she used the wand for Cendrillon so she could go to the ball after her step-mother wouldn't allow her to.
