Book Hunters in Brief #65: Cinderella

For a few rare stories, the style in which they are told can be changed over and over, but the story itself continues to fascinate no matter how many times we hear it. Fairy Tales are called that for a reason and it's not only because they feature magical beings, it's because the stories themselves contain a certain ineffable hold--a sort of magic--over young and old alike. This week the Book Hunters present some new spins on old tales.
