Chanda is a young girl in India who finds herself reduced to a mere servant by her stepmother after her mother's death and her father's remarriage. Sitting by the river, Chanda gazes into the mirror that was a gift from her mother, knowing little of the prince who also takes his solitary walks on the bank. Evocative watercolors accompany the text in both English and Hindi.

Margaret Bateson-Hill is the author of Lao Lao of Dragon Mountain, Shota and the Star Quilt, and Masha and the Firebird. Karin Littlewood is the illustrator of Swallow Journey.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-4-This "Cinderella" story from India has a nice twist involving a mirror that would only reflect a true and loving heart, and is passed down to Chanda by her dying mother. When the prince asks for the young woman's hand, her evil stepmother tries to substitute her daughter at the marriage ceremony, but the mirror shows the truth. The bilingual text is in Hindi and English. The lavish illustrations are vivid and romantically realistic. The setting and the different plot make this worth considering as an alternative version of a favorite classic tale.-Carol Johnson Shedd, formerly at National Outreach Center for Middle Eastern Studies, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA
