Cinderella, more splendidly attired and beautiful than ever, followed them shortly after. While she was sitting beside him in a lovely alcove, and looking at the moon from under a bower of orange blossoms, she heard a clock strike the first stroke of twelve. She started up, and fled away as lightly as a deer. Amazed, the prince followed, but could not catch her.
Indeed he missed his lovely princess altogether, and only saw running out of the palace doors a little dirty lass whom he had never beheld before, and of whom he certainly would never have taken the least notice, Cinderella arrived at home breathless and weary, ragged and cold, without carriage, or footmen, or coachman; the only remnant of her past magnificence being one of her little glass slippers;—the other she had dropped in the ball-room as she ran away.
When the two sisters returned they were full of this strange adventure, how the beautiful lady had appeared at the ball more beautiful than ever, and enchanted every one who looked at her; and how as the clock was striking twelve she had suddenly risen up and fled through the ball-room, disappearing no one knew how or where, and dropping one of her glass slippers behind her in her flight.
Cinderella listened in silence, turning her face to the kitchen fire, and perhaps it was that which made her look so rosy, but nobody ever noticed or admired her at home, so it did not signify, and next morning she went to her weary work again just as before.
At last the herald came to the house of the two sisters, and though they well knew neither of themselves was the beautiful lady, they made every attempt to get their clumsy feet into the glass slipper, but in vain.
Her sisters could not prevent her, since the command was that every young maiden in the city should try on the slipper, in order that no chance might be left untried, for the prince was nearly breaking his heart; and his father and mother were afraid that though a prince, he would actually die for love of the beautiful unknown lady. Her sisters recognized her at once. Filled with astonishment, mingled with no little alarm, they threw themselves at her feet, begging her pardon for all their former unkindness.
She raised and embraced them: told them she forgave them with all her heart, and only hoped they would love her always. For the young prince, he found her more lovely and loveable than ever, and insisted upon marrying her immediately.
Cinderella never went home again, but she sent for her two sisters to the palace, and with the consent of all parties married them shortly after to two rich gentlemen of the court.
It all started… Mark writes… I was telling stories in Newport at a camp for kids with handicaps, and that same summer I was up in Boston sharing stories with inner-city young people.
What story could connect these urban and handicapped listeners? There aren't very many classic stories that feature kids in wheelchairs, and most fairy tales don't play out in the urban streets. Little Red Riding Chair and Jack and the Beanchair almost worked, but it was a challenge getting the chair through the woods or up the beanstalk… How about Cinderella, but with a spin…?
The story was familiar, but had a nice urban grit to it. And over the years, I was always impressed that it never mattered to listeners that Cinderella was in a wheel chair! This is a draft page from the ebook laid out for iBooks. The final will be all color Why an ebook? Even though I tour the US and and give more than shows a year, I can't tell the story to everybody.
So we considered doing a traditional printed book.
But there was a problem. When I perform, I never described Cinderella.
Listeners were allowed to paint their own pictures of her and the Prince. Usually, they imagine themselves.
But as soon as we began looking at drawing her we had a challenge: what is Cinderella's ethnic background? By making Cinderella Spinderella an ebook, readers can choose from four "seasons. As a teacher, this edition offers the chance to discuss issues of race and class and disability. As an author, it allows me to share a great story with a variety of audiences. And as a storyteller, it allows me to narrate and "read along.
For instance, why would Cinderella have a pumpkin in the middle of winter? She wouldn't, but she might have a giant potato… What other features will the ebook have?
