Sinopsis:

In this Appalachian variant of the Cinderella tale, old Granny helps Ashpet attend the church picnic where she charms Doc Ellison's son but loses one of her fancy red shoes.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 1-3-As they did with Jack the Giant Chaser (Holiday, 1993), the Comptons have provided a cheerful Appalachian retelling of a classic tale. Joanne Compton has used the version recorded in Richard Chase's Grandfather Tales (Houghton, 1973) and added some distinctive touches that enhance the story's regional flavor. Here, Ashpet is a widow's "hired-out" girl rather than a stepdaughter; the fairy godmother is an "old granny"; the ball is a lengthy church meeting; and the handsome suitor is not a prince but the doctor's son. Young readers may also note that, unlike some of the more passive Cinderellas, Ashpet earns her right to attend the church meeting by her kindness to the old granny and shows some ingenuity when she deliberately loses her shoe. Kenn Compton's humorous watercolor cartoons capture the action and feature wild facial expressions. Ashpet is depicted as being almost as homely as the widow's daughters. Readers will enjoy comparing this to versions of the tale by the Grimms and Perrault, as well as to Louie Ai-Ling's Yeh-Shen (1990), based on the ancient Chinese variant mentioned in the author's note and to other American regional variants such as Rafe Martin's The Rough-Face Girl (1992, both Putnam).
