Adelita: A Mexican Cinderella Story A beautifully embroidered shawl is the key to solving the mystery of a young woman's disappearance from a fiesta, in this simple adaptation of Cinderella to a Mexican setting. Adelita, aided by her faithful nurse, defeats the cruel stratagems of her step-family, and finds a way to attend the celebrations marking the homecoming of a handsome young man. Illustrations in the style of Mexican folk art and a text that includeds (and explains) many Spanish phrases add to the charm of this original tale.
