This beloved Newbery Honor-winning story about a feisty heroine is sure to enchant readers new and old.
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...
Against a bold backdrop of princes, ogres, giants, wicked stepsisters, and fairy godmothers, Ella goes on a quest to break the curse forever.
Gail Carson Levine's first book for children, Ella Enchanted, was a Newbery Honor Book. Levine's other books include Ever, a New York Times bestseller; Fairest, a Best Book of the Year for Publishers Weekly and School Library Journal, and a New York Times bestseller; Dave at Night, an ALA Notable Book and Best Book for Young Adults; The Wish; The Two Princesses of Bamarre; A Tale of Two Castles; and the six Princess Tales books. She is also the author of the nonfiction books Writing Magic: Creating Stories That Fly and Writer to Writer: From Think to Ink, as well as the picture books Betsy Who Cried Wolf and Betsy Red Hoodie. Gail Carson Levine and her husband, David, live in a two-centuries-old farmhouse in the Hudson Valley of New York State.
“A thoroughly enchanting novel that deepens and enriches the original tale.”
LeorahUSAAge: Under 18Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Super sweet book...<3May 5, 2012LeorahUSAAge: Under 18Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I was eleven years old when I first read this book. It was the very first book I ever checked out from the library so that alone makes it something big to me. That is not why I decided to buy it though. I absolutely loved this book. Love this book! It was the book I like to think really awoke my imagination. It was full of thrilling adventure, sweet romance, and a bunch of laughs. It doesn't have a big Christian lesson behind it but there are nonetheless, some wonderful lessons you can learn from it.
This book is a book I definitively will be buying for my - God willing - daughter one day. I loved it and I am sure you will too!
BellaBattle Creek, MIAge: Under 18Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5February 11, 2011BellaBattle Creek, MIAge: Under 18Gender: femaleQuality: 3Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4The book is very good. The movie doesn't follow the first book though. Instead of trying to kill the prince like in the movie, Ella breaks it by refusing to marry him after he told her too. (He didn't know about the spell.) After the spell broke everyone lived happily ever after. I would suggest reading the first book and then watching to movie.
Kristen4 Stars Out Of 5August 12, 2010KristenWhat a fun, imaginative twist on the Cinderella story! The characters are well-drawn, the dialogue convincing and often hilarious; and while it has no deep Christian themes, Ella Enchanted is a fun, lighthearted story that parents can feel comfortable with.
Brianna4 Stars Out Of 5April 4, 2010BriannaA princess tale like no other. Ella based on Cinderella struggles with a magical case of obedience. The whole story is fun and enchanting. With a colorful cast of charecters, answering questions about the original tale in such a detailed manner. More then anyting,I liked how honest the romance in this book was (not mushy or fake). And the fairy godmothers are a story in themeselves!
