Giants, elves, ogres, oh my!
There are many Cinderella stories in all sorts of forms, Ella Enchanted is by far my favorite. This is one of the stories I can remember reading when I was younger. Ever since I have made the reference of "fairy feet". Ms. Levine's words and writing style have never left me. As a librarian her words still make me fall into the magical world of Frell and wish I was standing among fairies and elves. If you have not read the book, do NOT compare it to the movie. (Yes, there is a movie starring Anne Hathaway). The movie version is a (cheesy) musical that may have catchy tunes, but does no justice for the book. In this case, as in many, the book is much better than the movie.
I highly recommend Ella Enchanted. It is an easier read and a great light hearted story that will make you feel young again! Even if you are not an avid fantasy reader it has a little bit of everything (swords, true love, and human eating ogres) for everyone.
