"In this Jewish Cinderella tale, a man has three daughters who he loves. When he asks how much they love him, the two oldest compare their love to jewels, but his youngest (and favorite) says she loves him the way meat loves salt. He doesn't understand and throws her out, where she is forced to become a beggar and live with a kind rabbi's family far from home. She uses a magic stick she received to make a beautiful dress for herself to attend a wedding and the rabbi's son falls in love with her. This book incorporated Jewish traditions into a traditional fairy tale well, and ending with the girl getting back at her father by showing her what meat without salt actually tastes like. " said.

" A unique Cinderella tale...I really enjoyed this Jewish version. " said.

" I love Cinderella stories, especially those from other countries. This Jewish folktale is a fun version of the Cinderella story. " said.

" Really neat to see the Cinderella story from a Jewish perspective, but it was way too wordy. " said.

" I still love this one from my childhood. It’s rushed through like most classic fairy tales are but the concept is so different from others. " said.

"I loved this very different cultural retelling of a Cinderella-type story. Filled with Jewish, Polish, and Yiddish words and phrases, this story is so different from the typical Cinderella story, it's almost not even related. Other than having some wishes granted and losing a slipper, the rest of the details will be like reading a new story. A great way to introduce some cultural diversity along with religious diversity in a gentle way. Illustrations support story throughout. It does get a bit wordy on some pages, but none of it is superfluous. " said.
