Description


Climo and Heller conflate several Korean variants of Cinderella to offer up the story of Pear Blossom, a lovely girl who is sorely mistreated by her nasty stepmother and stepsister. At once comfortingly familiar and intriguingly exotic, the text is especially noteworthy for its instructive but unobtrusive incorporation of Korean words. Publishers Weekly. Heller's paintings are exotically lush and colorful as well as engaging. An agreeable retelling of the Cinderella story. BL.
