Ella Enchanted, the book

Ella Enchanted, Gail Carson Levine
  • Delightful.
  • I will own this book.  I will read this story to my girls.  More than once.  
  • If you have seen the movie by the same title (and not read the book), please disregard it as being connected to this story.
  • What a sweet, funny, and strong pauper to princess tale -- a worthy model of romance and a witty and brave heroine.  Disney's Cinderella is pretty much dead to me.
  • The snivelly, vindictive characters really get under your skin -- as they should, and can, because you know there will be comeupance coming.  It is nice to trust a YA book to deliver.
  • My only beef is that Ella's hair is black, publishers and illustrator.  What gives?
