Summary of the story: Cinderella is a traditional fairy tale based on the central character, Cinderella, who lives with her cruel family. She has two ugly stepsisters who make Cinderella do all their work. They wear beautiful clothes and she has to wear rags. They get an invitation to the ball but Cinderella does not and she is very upset. Suddenly, a fairy godmother appears and helps Cinderella get to the ball by magically giving her a gorgeous gown and turning a pumpkin into a carraige. At the ball Cinderella dances with the Prince who falls in love with her. However, at the stroke of midnight Cinderella must leave the ball as her clothes will turn back to rags after 12 o'clock and as she rushes out she leaves one of her shoes behind.
