Fair, Brown & Trembling : An Irish Cinderella Story by Jude Daly (Illustrator)
In this Irish Cinderella fairytale, Trembling is the overworked and overlooked sibling of her two older snooty sisters Fair and Brown. Unlike the original Cinderella story, the place to catch their prince is not at a Ball, but at Sunday Mass. All women try to look their best for that occasion. An old henwife acts as the fairy godmother and POOF! - Trembling is the gorgeous and mysterious woman standing outside the church that everyone wants to meet. Although Trembling remains anonymous, when she flees on her milk-white mare, the love-bitten Prince Emania grabs her shamrock-green slipper. Like the original Cinderella tale, the prince searches for the slipper's owner. A twist is added to this story where the Prince also has to fight off other suitors. Yes...they DO get married. You'll never guess how many children they have or the fate of the older sisters, Fair and Brown!
