Ella Enchanted by Gail Carson Levine
Ella was given a gift at birth that she never asked for and doesn’t want. That gift has caused no end of trouble and heartache in her life. Why had that fairy decided that the gift of obedience was so wonderful? How can Ella live a life free of this curse? Join Ella as she journeys to find a fairy, falls in love with a prince, and learns some important life lessons along the way. She is a girl with charm and heart and smarts. If you’ve seen the movie, you may be surprised at the differences between it and the book. Don’t let that stop you from reading this enchanting tale of a girl who comes to understand so much more about herself and her true nature than she might have without her “gift.” Some gifts are given with the best of intentions but turn out to be the worst thing possible. Read in Ella Enchanted how one girl comes to a place where her “gift” truly becomes one after all. This is a great book to read with a child of ten or more. Find a copy today and you’ll be enchanted.
