" A Cinderella story. A good starting point for Chinese folk and fairy tales. " said.

" Interesting Chinese rendition of the Cinderella story. The stepmother killing the fish was a bit disturbing. I wonder what the original telling is like, for I think something was definitely lost in translation here. While the children would recognize the Cinderella elements, I'm not sure how well this would go for a story time. " said.

" Wishbones: A Folk Tale from China is the familiar story of Cinderella with a Chinese twist. Yeh Hsien has the requisite evil stepmother, but this time she uses magic fishbones to dress in finery and thereby impress the king. She wishes for violet slippers and loses one when the evil stepmother becomes suspicious...she flees in terror. You know the rest... she marries the king and they live happily every after. Used for "Gung Hay Fat Choy!" storytime: January, 2012. " said.
