4月のおすすめ本は シャルル・ ペローの「CINDERELLA」です。この本にはイタリア人のイラスト、ロベルト・ インノチェンティが絵画を1920代に変えしました。


BoM4April’s book is Charles Perrault’s version of Cinderella; however, the illustrator, Italian artist Roberto Innocenti, chose to set the tale in the 1920s.

Cinderella is a fairytale with many variations, from children’s storybooks, to ballets, musicals, and films.

Three of my favorite versions are: the novel by Gregory Maguire,  Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister; the film Ever After, starring Drew Barrymore; and Disney’s 1950 animated feature film, Cinderella.

 I’m excited to see the live-action version which will be released in Japan on April 25th.


Actually, when I was a high school student, I was in yet another version: Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella.  This version is a musical also based on the Charles Perrault story.  I was cast as one of the wicked stepsisters and I really enjoyed my part. 😈


Please enjoy looking at April’s book while having your hair colored or permed!

もし良かったらパーマやカラーの待ち時間に是非読んでみて下さい。 🙂
