Cinderella is a good girl. She has two sisters. Cinderella works and works in the house. Her sisters will not help.
Here are Cinderella's sisters. They are happy. They are going to a ball. The prince will be there, and Cinderella's sisters will see him.
Cinderella can't go to the ball. She has no ball dress or shoes. She has to work in the house.
Cinderella helps her sisters to dress for the ball. "The prince will like us," they say. "He will want to dance with us."
The sisters go off to the ball and Cinderella works on. She is not happy. She wants to go to the ball and see the prince.
Cinderella looks up. There is her fairy godmother. She says, "Do you want to go to the ball, Cinderella?" "I can't go," says Cinderella. "I have no ball dress and no shoes. I can't go to the ball in this dress."
"Let me help you," says the fairy godmother. "I will give you all the things you want. Go and get me a big pumpkin."
Cinderella is a good girl. She gets a big pumpkin and gives it to her fairy godmother. The fairy godmother changes the pumpkin into a golden coach.
Then the fairy godmother says, 'Go and get me some mice, please 'Yes, godmother," says Cinderella. She gets some little mice 'Here you are," she says. Her fairy godmother changes all the mice into horses.
"I want a big rat, please," says the fairy godmother. Cinderella gets her a rat. The fairy godmother changes the rat into a coach man dressed in red.
"Go and get me two lizards, please," says the fairy godmother. Cinderella gets two lizards. The fairy godmother changes the lizards into two footmen.
Then the fairy godmother says, "I will make you a dress for the ball, Cinderella." She changes Cinderella's dress into a ball dress.
"Here are some shoes for you, Cinderella," says the fairy godmother.
"You can go to the ball and see the prince. There is one thing I want you to do. Please be home by midnight."
"Thank you, fairy godmother,' says Cinderella. "I will be home by midnight." Cinderella gets into the golden coach to go to the ball.
It is almost midnight. "I have to go home," says Cinderella. She runs away. Her shoe comes off. She runs on. The coach is not there.
The horses are not there. The coach man and the footmen are not there. Cinderella has her working dress on. She runs home.

Then the prince comes to Cinderella's house. Cinderella's sisters try the shoe on. It will not fit.
Cinderella comes in and says, "Please let me try the shoe on." "No, you can't," say her sisters. "Yes, you can," says the prince. "I want all the girls to try it on." Cinderella puts the shoe on, and it fits. The prince says, "Please will you marry me?" Cinderella says, "Yes, I will marry you."
The fairy godmother comes. She changes Cinderella's dress into a golden ball dress. Thank you, fairy godmother, says Cinderella.
