Little Gold Star/Estrellita de Oro The Hispanic folktales of New Mexico provide the material for this bilingual retelling of the Cinderella story. Arcia is rewarded for her respect for a talking hawk with a gold star on her forehead, whilst her step-sisters' ill-mannered responses cause them to grow, respectively, a donkey's ear and a cow's horn. Folk-art style paintings by Gloria and Lucia Perez enhance the magical atmosphere.
