3: Cinderella

3: Cinderella

Cinderella spends all day working while her sisters sit in armchairs lazily reading magazines and eating chocolates.

One day there is huge excitement as the Prince decides to hold a party at the palace.

Cinderella is not allowed to go to the party and sits sadly by the fire when she is visited by a tiny old lady - her wish fairy.

A few moments of magic later and Cinderella is off to the party in a lavish dress and transported by a horse-drawn carriage, with instructions to enjoy herself but to be home before midnight as the magic will end then.

At midnight the clock strikes and Cinderella loses her glass slipper as she dashes from the palace. But her fortunes are about to change and a happy ending is assured.
