It’s almost impossible to grow up without once hearing the story of Cinderella, the sweet-natured, ill-treated peasant girl who, with the help of a little fairy magic, makes her way to the kingdom’s grandest ball and wins the heart of its handsome prince before fleeing at midnight - leaving behind nothing but a lonely glass slipper. This Brothers Grimm version is an early recorded iteration, and differs of course in some details. But whether it’s your first time hearing this story or your 50th, Laura Paton’s skilled performance of the classic tale is bound to bring it alive in a truly unique way. Paton’s sweet voice is a delight to hear, and her delivery is well-paced and satisfying.
This is a story from the Grimm's Fairy Tales collection.
Here are some of the most enchanting fairy stories of all time. The Brothers Grimm conjure up a world of fantasy, hope and good fortune where the princess meets and marries the right prince (even if he once was a frog), and where the cruel witch, the arrogant wife and the greedy wolf get their comeuppance. It is a magical world which we must all inhabit at one time in our lives and which are as important in this computer age as ever before.
