Climo, S. (1989). The Egyptian Cinderella. New York: HarperCollins Publishers.

The Egyptian Cinderella takes place in ancient Egypt. Rhodopis is a young slave, who is ridiculed for her fair hair and light complexion. The Pharaoh Amasis, is visited by a falcon (who is the god Horus), who drops a slipper on his lap. The Pharaoh takes this as a sign that he is to marry the woman whose foot fits the slipper. The slipper belongs to Rhodopis, and they marry. This is another fun version of the Cinderella story, which will peak children’s interests.

Highly Recommended ****
