In this version of Cinderella set in ancient Korea, Pear Blossom, a stepchild, eventually comes to be chosen by the magistrate to be his wife


The illustrator tried to capture traditional korean culture by imitating korean temple art, the book has dynamic traditional art patterns and has a quality of movement throughout the book.

The cover image and final image of the korean cinderella are beautiful, and made me want to buy the book, however she is drawn crudely and looks ugly throughout the rest of the book. If I had seen this book in person, I might not have bought it, that's how ugly the faces are, but it's not worth returning the book.
Great story, beautifully illustrated, but a little harsh for young readers. I read it aloud to 1-3 graders and one of the girls was very concerned about the way the Cinderella character was treated. Probably fine for most kids, but know your audience
My niece got this as a birthday present. She loved it so much! I later ordered the Persian Cinderella as a Christmas present.
Written in English. Not the same story as told to children growing up in Korea. The writer took liberties to make up their own version. Not bad, just not the same.
They did a good job with the Korean references.
Great story we use with our "in search of Cinderella " unit
Easy for young girls to read and the illustrations are great!
My students from Korea appreciate this book that has cultural ties, and my students from other countries like to learn about their classmates' culture. With Cinderella as the common thread, this is easier.
