About the Author

Shirley Climo's love of folklore began in her childhood and has provided the background for many of her children's books, such as The Korean Cinderella, Magic & Mischief: Tales from Cornwall, A Treasury of Princesses: Princess Tales from Around the World, A Treasury of Mermaids: Mermaid Tales from Around the World, and Someone Saw a Spider: Spider Facts and Folktales, an NCTE Teacher's Choice and Library of Congress Best Children's Book that was originally inspired by her research for Cobweb Christmas. Mrs. Climo and her husband live in Los Altos, California.

From Our Editors

As in the familiar version of Cinderella, Pear Blossom, the Korean Cinderella, is mistreated by a cruel stepmother and made to perform outrageous tasks. Pear Blossom's fairy godmother appears in the form of tokgabis, magical creatures that come to her aid and help her to triumph over her ill-meaning relatives. Full color.

Editorial Reviews

"A stunning combination of fluent prose and exquisitely wrought illustations. Egyptian birds and animals pulse with life, and information about Egyptian mythology and civilization are subtly interwoven into the traditional folktale. A winner." (Starred review) (School Library Journal)

Appropriate for ages: 3 - 5
