Ama's Picture Books

My grandmother recently left me her entire collection of picture books and children's literature. The entire collection is comprised of over 300 books. I am attempting to read as many as possible in 2014.

The Korean Cinderella

The Korean Cinderella - Shirley Climo, Ruth Heller

written by Shirley Climo, illustrated by Ruth Heller


I didn't like this book. Again, there's something about both the story and illustrations that I don't like. It's really a gut feeling more than something I can actually point to. Though the people in the illustrations are by far the weakest point, and they often look almost stereotypical? Flat faces, slanted eyes, etc.


If you're looking for a Korean Cinderella story, skip this one and look for one written and illustrated by Koreans.
