Cinderella

The story of Cinderella has a universal appeal. Cinderella consists of several versions that reflect different cultures. In the Nigerian ?Cinderella? version, the tale was recorded in the (West Africa) Hausa language and published, originally, in 1911 by Frank Edgar. The story is about a man who had two wives, and they each had a daughter. The wife he disliked fell ill, and she died. Her daughter moved into the home of the favored wife and became a maidservant. She befriended a frog at the borrow-pit, and the frog showered her with gifts for the chief?s festival. The chief was in search for a wife and he chose Cinderella. In contrast to the Native American ?Cinderella? version, the tale was told, originally, in the Algonquin language. The story is about an Invisible man, who is under the care of his sister. His sister takes walks in the park and girls get all dressed up to see the Invisible man. Yet, they are unable to see him. In a village, there was a widower and his three daughters. The cruel, older sister tortured the youngest, ill daughter. She was known as the ?Oochigeaskw- the rough-faced girl.? The tale concludes with the
