ED 411-Ella Enchanted

Ella Enchanted - Gail Carson Levine

This is a great book! It is a funny and charming retelling of the classic Cinderella story in the magical land of Frell. Ella is cursed to do whatever she is told and must find a way to break her curse before she is forced to do something terrible. I would use this book in the classroom as a study of variations of fairy tales. I would have students make a venn diagram comparing the book to the original story.The intended audience for this book is 4th, 5th and 6th graders.
