Cinderella, 2013, 606d (Facsimile)


In 2013 Penguin decided to bring out a facsimile edition of some of the most popular Ladybird books.  Cinderella was one of the first titles they chose.  They decided to give this book a paper dust jacket over buff boards – although back in the 1960s when this book came out, only the first edition ever had a dustwrapper.

The text, as always in the books of this series, was written by Vera Southgate.  In her telling of the story, Cinders goes to three different balls and so artist Eric Winter presented us with three different dream ball dresses.  If you remember this book fondly from childhood, you probably had your favourite of the three.  So are you Team Pink, Team Blue or Team ‘White/Gold’?

The facsimile edition allows you to buy a copy of a well-loved book that feels new and clean rather than secondhand.  The downside is that the colours are a little faded and lack a bit of spark.
