18. Golden Sandal: A Middle Eastern
Cinderella Story
(Holiday House, 1998)
Rebecca Hickox & Will Hillenbrand
(Grades 2-6)

An Iraqi version of the Cinderella story in which a kind and beautiful girl who is mistreated by her stepmother and stepsister finds a husband with the help of a magic fish.

“The story is charmingly told and illustrated with paintings on vellum, giving the pictures a soft, luxurious quality.”

New York Times Book Review

“Hillenbrand's delicate, textured illustrations have the look of watered silk touched with glowing jewel-toned accents. The paintings integrate well with the text, and the result is a sweet, smooth book with just a hint of spice.”
