One day, a messenger arrives from the royal palace, inviting all the girls in the land to a Grand Ball. The King has decided that it is time for his son, the Prince, to get married. Cinderella's stepsisters are very excited, and spend all day getting ready, but no one even thinks of inviting Cinderella! She is left at home, feeling very sad. Suddenly, there is a flash of light, and a beautiful fairy is smiling at her. "I am your fairy godmother," she tells the astonished girl, "and I've come to help you. My dear, you shall go to the ball!" Sparkling details on every page of this magical boardbook bring this popular story to life, highlighting the glittering coach that the fairy godmother produces for Cinderella to ride in, and all the finery of the party.
