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.
