ASCHENPUTTEL (c) 1965 by Der Kinderbuchverlag Berlin
This book is THE favorite from my childhood.
Looking through the pages, I can see why I like to read and write fantasy.
Look, all of the elements are there: bats, rats and black cats.
And since it's the Grimm version of Cinderella, it's not sanitized.
It's written in German. Here's the English translation.
I didn't get my image of a prince from here, though.
This guy would never do it for me, except for the hair. I like the hair.
You can still buy this book for 9,95 euros or 13.58 US.
wow...what a cool old book...would def be a treasure...and i am intrigued...a grimm version of cinderella...off to read the english version...ReplyDelete
I love it! From the year I was born. That was a good year for books and strange oddities that have never quite fit in!ReplyDelete
The hair is great. I've always been a fan of guys with longer, shaggy hair.ReplyDelete
