What the community says about Ella Enchanted

Both endearing and appealing, this book highlights the love of family and the wonderful journey that life can take you on. Get your copy today, I did."
- "A wonderful modern take on a very old tale. This book perfectly captured the "girl power' of the 90's and oozes in the charm of that decade. It took me right back to my childhood. The fantasy elements feel right at home in the modern day.""Fun fairy tale story that includes all the fairy tale things from ogres & giants to spells and more, but set in a more current setting. Very fun book, warm and wonderful.""A fun twist on a classic tale. It's hard to re-invent fairy tales, but this book does so in such a charming way that you fall in love with this story all over again. "
- "Ella Enchanted is itself an excellent book - and my daughters and I loved it so much that they choose it as their listening for our long summer vacation drive. We've now listened to the tapes twice through! The reading is lively and spirited, the young reader's voice could indeed be Ella - which is important as the story is in first person. I'm so glad they had a young performer read this! It was fun to hear her interpretations of the different languages of the various races and countries in the story, also. You can't go wrong with this purchase."
