At her birth, Ella of Frell receives a foolish fairy's gift—the “gift” of obedience. Ella must obey any order, whether it's to hop on one foot for a day and a half, or to chop off her own head! But strong-willed Ella does not accept her fate...

From Our Editors

Junior Booklovers Contest Winner Katrina, age 14, Winnipeg, MBI have to say, of all the fantasy and fairytale books and stories that I have read, this one tops the list! Ella Enchanted is a beautifully and elegantly written adaptation of the classic Cinderella story, and really, I must say, it's the best one I've read so far.The traditional love story, when put into Gail Carson Levine's mind for fantasy, is put in a much more comical sense, and the characters are so lovable! I simply adore Prince Char - he really is charming - and like, the perfect guy! And I really admire Ella for being so heroic - I told you I liked heroes! This story, like most fairytales, has the perfect "happily ever after" ending and I love it! If anyone asked me for the perfect romantic fairytale, I would suggest this - wait, I already have!--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Being a fairy is never easy. Since her birth, Ella of Frell has been the unfortunate recipient of an addled fairy's gift -- the "gift" of obedience. However, spunky Ella does not tamely accept her fate and embarks on a quest to break this curse once and for all! Ella Enchanted is a nice addition to every young reader’s collections.
