    Do you like retelling of fairy tales? Gail Carson Levine is the author for you She is witty and pokes fun at fairy tales all the while making you love the story even “ When he was six years old Ellis invented flying powder He sprinkled the powder on his tin cup and the cup began to rise up the chimney He stuck his head into the fireplace to see how far up it would go The fire was out of course” – Cinderellis and the Glass Hill by Gail Carson LevineJust by the first page you can grasp the humor Levine puts in her words Her use of run on sentences leaves you out of breath and laughing from the repetitiveness Her objective to point out the obvious will keep you entertainedIn Cinderellis and the Glass Hill a retelling of a Norwegian fairy tale collected by Peter Christen Asbjørnsen and Jørgen Moe in Norske Folkeeventyr the youngest of three brothers obtains a series of magical horses He has a special gift for making special powders to help the farm but the brother’s don’t bother giving him any attention It’s supposed to rain tomorrow after all This story also weaves in the classic Italian fairy tale called Cinderella or The Little Glass Slipper I say this because of the name she gives the main guy character two siblings that are rude and mean to the other and a contest that takes three days that ends in marriage Now we have two stories in one book? It’s our lucky day folks Cinderellis and Marigold have two things in common their family doesn't pay much attention to them and their best friends are animals horses and a cat They are terribly lonely and only want their family to love them and spend time with them But alas that isn't how things happen for themMarigold’s father goes on crazy uest to find crazy things and ends up with even crazier findings He comes up with an idea to find the perfect husband for his lovely daughter In order to marry her a suitor must have armor a horse be courageous brave and be able to ride a horse very well Climbing up a very slippery shiny glass hill is the logical solution Will Marigold end up marrying a scary man? Will Cinderellis win the affections of his brothers? Will Cinderellis’ crops stop disappearing? Will Marigold’s father find something actually useful on his uest?Levine has a splash of humor you will not find anyone else Using plays on words and awkward humor this is perfect for a story for a young girl or for a grown woman who can’t get enough of fairy tales cough me I will always be a fan of Levine’s writing and I am so happy I picked them up first on my own uest to reread all my favorite books

    I enjoyed the animal perspectives the spoofs of uests and the subverted Cinderella icons Imagining Burt and Ralph as the Weasley twins took away some of my frustration with those characters

  3. Milliebot says:

    This was a super cute gender swap loosely based on Cinderella plus any fairytale where a guy has to do some impossible task to gain the hand of the princess Both Ellis and princess Marigold were lonely and seeking companionship from their family which was sad but gave them good motivation for a short story

  4. Leah says:

    Another enchanting fairy tale retelling by Gail Carson Levine This time the hero is a resourceful but lonely farmer boy given the nickname Cinderellis by his unkind brothers And the herione is a gentle but lonely princess living in the castle of her father who often leaves her to go on uests

    I really liked this book because it had so much surplices and it really did the unsuspected I liked how the author made the characters switch on and off for talking So that we could have both opp ions and so that we could here both sides of them at different times I liked how that they both felt lonely and that they had nobody I think that Marigold changed the most because at first she was so lonely She wanted her dad to stay home so much from his adventures so that she could be with her dad and not be so lonely Than her dad got cursed and he couldn't go on any adventures and so he had to stay home She also was mad because she had to stay in a tower so that men could come and get three golden apples from her That man would become king and so she went around dissected as a dairy maid She asked all the men in line what they would do if they won She was happy when she met Cinderellas It was like love at first sight It was so beautiful and Cinderellas wanted to marry her if he won and he wanted to pay for the marriage with the three golden apples I didn't like how that the brothers treated Cinderellas so bad and like he was invisible I did like how the things that kept on eating the hay was a huge horse Cinderellas caught the horses and brothers didn't believe him and so he just kept the horses to himself I didn't like how Marigold dad was always away so then she would be all alone in the castle I would have been so mad if my dad was gone for that long I loved how it was like they were apart at first than they came together how they slow made it to each other How Marigold thought that he was a monster because he couldn't talk in the helmet that was so funny
