Cinders has left the ball, and everything’s gone back to normal, all that is, apart from one mouse. The mouse (in human form) starts working at the King’s stable, where he proves to have a talent for dealing with horses.
Katharine Gibson (1893 - 1980) was born in Indianapolis, and worked in the education department of the Cleveland Museum of Art. She and her husband, a Minister, travelled frequently, particularly to England. Katharine Gibson was particularly interested in fairy tales, and most of her books are re-tellings, or developments, of fairy tales. Her one horse book, Cinders, considers what might have happened had one of the mice changed into a coachman not changed back again at midnight.
Finding the book:reasonably easy to find, but pricing is variable.
