Description du produit
Présentation de l'éditeur
This is a story about darkness and light, about sorrow and joy, about something lost and something found. This is a story about Love.
Cinderella’s story has been told over and over, but never has it been touched by the kind of magic found in this book. Mary Blair painted the original pictures for Walt Disney’s incomparable animated film, and here her elegant art is gathered together as a picture book for the first time. Cynthia Rylant’s stories about hardscrabble lives have won not only awards and honors, but hearts. Who better to take a young girl from the darkness of her garret room to the light and brilliance of a ballroom?
Together these two great artists have created something quite astonishing: a Cinderella that is breathtaking, heartrending, and joyous, both for those who are coming to the tale for the very first time, and for those who think they know it well.

One wonders who else worked for years without glory or suitable pay that the Disney Studios will bring to our attention in the future. We're fortunate that Disney has produced an entire book out of concept drawings - rather than simply including a few in "the making of Cinderella" or some other publication. This is truly a work of art. I can't wait to see if there is more in the Mary Blair vault.
As such, although this may be a difficult book for younger children to handle (the pages are large and tear easily) this is a book I think all will treasure.
These are not the final images as seen in Disney's film, but more expressionistic and primitive, freer, moodier, rougher, more startling. As art, they stand firmly on their own: extreme contrasts, dramatic compositions, surprising color combinations. (I think these pages would be fascinating to very young artists working with their own very free hands and their own exuberant experiments with color.) Blair's paintings capture and freeze moments of heightened feeling and thought and movement as only a brilliant artist can.
It's so interesting to play these images against those we have in memory from the film and to note how the concept paintings set the image and tone, but also how very powerful they are alone: a small square of bright sunlight warms the wall of a cold dark hallway where a young girl stands waiting--a lesson in mood, color, composition, and visual storytelling. And so is every page.
The storytelling itself is equally fine--a sublime, wise, rich, moving text by Cynthia Rylant. Beautiful unexpected turns of phrase surprise again and again. This is writing of the highest order. And it is perfectly IN place here--in this ageless work of art to which children and adults will return again and again.
"This is a book about Love." It is also clearly a labor of love for all concerned: note the interplay of text printed always against perfectly chosen colors that coordinate with the facing art (Make a game of this after the tenth rereading: "Why do you think they chose THIS color here?"), and the back dust jacket which hides (don't forget to peek) a different illustration altogether.
This is a beautiful book--one that might lead parents at some point to talk to children about editors, and artists, and designers, and poets, and about how great books are made.
